Officials are seeking this man, who they say exposed himself and masturbated Feb. 20 on a public bus. They say the same man has exposed himself at least four other times recently.

NEW PORT RICHEY — A new victim has come forward in the case of a serial exhibitionist who has exposed himself to at least five people in recent weeks, authorities said.

The latest victim is a 17-year-old girl who was a volunteer at the Regency Park Library. She was shelving books in the adult fiction section about 5:30 p.m. Feb. 27 when she saw the man expose himself and masturbate, the Pasco County Sheriff's Office said. The girl no longer volunteers at the library.

The Sheriff's Office is still looking for the unidentified man, who they believe exposed himself in four other instances:

• About 4:45 p.m. Feb. 20, a man was masturbating on a Pasco County Public Transportation bus while looking at a female passenger. The woman moved to the front. Deputies say he boarded at Gulf View Square mall; much of the route runs along Seven Springs Boulevard.

• On March 9, a man was removed from the RaceTrac gas station at U.S. 19 and Fox Hollow Drive after he was caught masturbating in the store.

• On March 12, a man approached a stranger's home on Crabtree Lane in the Embassy Hills subdivision. When the resident asked the man what he was doing behind her home, the man pulled down his pants and began to masturbate.

• On Sunday, a man went to pay for an item at the Dollar General store at U.S. 19 and Fox Hollow Drive, and exposed himself to a clerk at the counter.

"What we're concerned about is what he's going to do next," Sheriff Chris Nocco said at a press conference Wednesday. "We don't know what else he may have done."

Anyone with information may contact the Sheriff's Office at 1-800-706-2488.

    Editorials

    President Donald Trump's strategy on Afghanistan makes two things abundantly clear: He has no better idea than Barack Obama how to break a political stalemate between the Afghan government and the insurgents, and he intends to turn over the losing military campaign to the ex-generals who have chewed on this for years …
