The Odessa Police Department needs your help locating a man who was taking inappropriate photos of a teen.

On Thursday night, an unknown man was seen inside the Dollar General, located at 120 W. Clements St.

We’re told the man was seen taking photos of a 14-year-old girl up her skirt.

According to the report, the victim told police she heard a “shutter” noise while a photo was taken of her.

The man is described as a Hispanic male, approximately 5’6” tall, wearing a brown work shirt with the name tag of “Jesus” sewn on it.
