For the second time in eight days, a man has approached women in the Destrehan Winn-Dixie parking lot and made lewd comments and gestures towards them before driving away, according to the St. Charles Parish Sheriff’s Office.

The first incident occurred on June 2 when a woman was getting out of her car in the Winn-Dixie parking lot at 1 p.m.. After exiting the vehicle, she saw that a man was parked behind her in a large truck. The woman told police that the man made lewd and obscene comments and gestures to her before she threatened to call 911.

When she threatened to call the authorities, the man drove off.

On June 10 at 2:30 p.m. the same man approached two 17-year-old girls and made similar comments and gestures.

The suspect is described as a dark-complected white male between 40 and 60 years old. Witnesses say he has short, gray hair, a stocky build and was wearing a light colored T-shirt with sunglasses.

He was seen circling the parking lot several times before he approached the first female.

His vehicle is described as a large two-toned pickup truck, possibly an F-250, colored blue-gray with tan trim.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Lt. Eric Brass at (985)783-1135.
