Police have identified a subway flasher that exposed himself at least three times to different women in New York between August and September.

Kenneth Hoyt, 52, was identified after a woman recognized saw a picture of the suspect on the news and called police, but they have yet to track him down, the New York Post reported. Hoyt flashed women at least three times, two on the R train Aug. 16. and one at City Hall station Sept. 5, according to police.

“He was like shifting, shifting in his seat, and then I looked down, and he’s literally like inches from me,” one unnamed victim said when describing the incident.

Hoyt has been registered with the state’s sex offender list since 1987 after being convicted of having sex with a 13-year-old girl, according to CBS. He was arrested at least 16 times prior to the latest incident for harassment, prostitution and public lewdness. Hoyt was also sentenced to 30 months in jail in 2013 after moving locations and failing to register as a sex offender, according to federal documents.

A source said that detectives are currently on the lookout for the subway flasher but “just don’t know what rock he’s hiding under right now.”
