An Omaha bartender steps up to help police. Did his sharp eye help catch a suspect who has been terrorizing women?
Ben Dolan, a bartender says, "He was just kind of hanging around in here, he didn't order anything."
As a bartender, Ben Dolan meets all kinds of customers, but a few months ago, one stood out.
Dolan says, "I can read people pretty well. He just looked kind of spooky."
Ben says the "shady" customer took off. An hour later, police came in.
There have been a string of flashing suspect reports here in Dundee. The suspect can be bold, even knocking on women's front doors before flashing them. Locals have started calling the suspect, "The Dundee Flasher."
Ben Dolan says, "They actually left their badge number and said call 911 if you see him again."
Fast forward a few months-Ben did see him again.
Dolan says, "I was at CVS last Saturday getting a few things and I just walked by him and I knew it was him instantly."
Malorie Maddox asks, "How long did you make eye contact?"
Ben says, "It wasn't very long. I walked into the next aisle, glanced back, and knew it was him."
Ben dialed 911 immediately and says police rushed to the store.
"About and hour later they called me and said they were talking to him. About an hour and a half later they called me back and said they booked him," said Ben.
He hopes by coming forward, no more women will be terrorized in Dundee.
"I live in Dundee, and you don't want people out there like that." said Ben.
Channel 6 checked with Omaha Police. They said they have not made an arrest yet, but are actively investigating this case.
They ask anyone with information to call 402-444-5636 or 444-7867 if you wish to remain anonymous.
