Ex-Israeli military mom chases, tackles man who flashes his goods to her

A woman who was flashed while jogging in Cambridge, Massachusetts, ran down the flasher, and the incident was caught on surveillance camera, according to the Massachusetts State Police.

The state police have posted the video to Twitter and are looking for the public’s help in finding the suspect.

It happened at about 7:30 a.m. while Aia Polansky, an ex-Israeli soldier, was jogging on Memorial Drive near Vassar Street in Cambridge, according to the police.

“The woman pursued the man and attempted to physically detain him while calling for those nearby to contact police,” the state police said. “The man resisted the woman’s attempt to detain him and fled the area, last seen running down Amesbury Street.”

“[If] I’m not going to chase him, he’s going to scare some girl and get her all the way down and then what? No,” Polansky said.

“I saw a guy pulling his pants down, I didn’t put a lot of thought to it but when he came towards me and pulled his pants down again all the way to his knees and reached his hand out, I realized this is not just an emergency, he is a flasher,” Polansky said.

The police say the suspect is a white male with a heavy build, short dark-colored hair, a receding hair line, wearing black and gray running clothes and black running shoes with white soles.

The segment of video released by the state police does not show the indecent exposure, but police say they have reviewed the entire tape.

The Massachusetts State Police are asking anyone with information about the suspect’s identity to contact Trooper Martin Concannon at the State Police Barracks in Boston.
