KNIGHTDALE — Police are looking for a teenager accused of inappropriately touching women on the Mingo Creek Greenway trail.

The Knightdale Police Department is investigating two incidents that occurred this month near the Wildewaters community trailhead near mile marker 2 ¾.

Both incidents took place around 1 p.m., one on June 2 and the second on June 4.

In each case, the teen followed women as they walked on the greenway trail. He would touch at least one woman without consent before running away.

Police describe the perpetrator as a teenage boy around 5 feet, 5 inches to 5 feet, 7 inches tall with a larger frame. Witnesses told officers the teen is biracial or Black with light skin. He has dark, curly hair.

Police released home security footage that shows a young person matching the teen’s description entering the greenway.

The police department said greenway users should use caution and be aware of their surroundings. Anyone on the trail should walk with someone else and carry a phone at all times.

Anyone with information about these incidents is asked to call Detective Kerry Burke at 919-217-2261. Suspicious activity should be reported by calling 911 immediately.
