Police looking for man who exposes himself at Austintown hotels

AUSTINTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – Police are looking for a man they say has been exposing himself to people at Austintown hotels.

The latest incident was reported just after 2 a.m. on Tuesday, when officers were called to the Fairfield Inn on N. Canfield Niles Road.

An employee told police that she was setting up for breakfast when she noticed a man sitting by the TV in the lobby. She said the man told her he was waiting on a friend.

While she continued to work, she noticed the man was touching himself and watching pornography on his cell phone, according to a police report. She confronted the man and said he did not reply, instead getting up and walking out of the business.

Police said they received similar reports from the Super 8 Motel on Seventy-Six Drive and the Sleep Inn on Interstate Boulevard.

Officers did not find the man but are investigating a possible suspect.
