    A man charged with indecent exposure and then released is being sought by police again after women say they were assaulted in a Prince George's County park.

    Multiple women -- including those accompanied by children -- have reported being groped by a man in Riverdale Park. Several women since May have said they were assaulted along the Trolley Trail, which runs from Riverdale to Hyattsville.

    The women reported they were using the trail when a man pretended to be looking for something and then tried to grope them. Two of the women were with their young children at the time of the attacks.

    Joshua Charles Price, 23, was charged with indecent exposure on Monday and released on $4,500 bond. Friday afternoon, Riverdale Park Place released his photo and said he is being sought in connection to assaults along the trail.

    News4 spoke with the husband of a woman who had an encounter with a man who matched the description of the suspect, right down to the red baseball cap he's wearing in a mugshot. The woman was riding a bike with the couple's 5-year-old son sitting in a carrier on the back of the bike.

    "A blue car with a very tall, probably about 6-5, 6-6 black male got out and started coming toward her, coming toward her and, she got nervous," the man said. "She said her instinct was to ride."

    Anyone with information is asked to call police at 443-790-5365.
