Goodyear police are looking for a man, who wasn't wearing any pants, who approached two teens on October 12th. 

According to police, the man was near Charleston Boulevard and Desert Foothills Drive and approached two young female teens from behind a corner in an area that was isolated. 

Police say the man was not wearing pants and had been watching the girls. 

A couple, Eli and Monique Marez, saw the girls in the desert.

'What caught our attention is my husband noticed a really nice camera expensive camera on the sidewalk, and it was probably 100 yards away from them," Monique said. "We got out of the car, and I motion to them, and they said 'Yes, that is our camera' and they ran over to get it." 

Investigators describe the man as a Caucasian man who is in his mid forties. He's about 6 feet tall, weighs about 170 pounds and has no facial hair. He has gray hair that could be combed back. 

When shown a sketch of the suspect, Monique said she might have seen him leaving the area.

"I did see a gentleman that was walking west on Charles Boulevard," she said. "[He] looked similar to [the sketch], but I can't say that I've seen him before."

Eli said the incident is enough to make him think twice about letting children out by themselves.

"It's pretty shocking, to hear that something like this is taking place," he said. "As much as we want to think that we live in a safe neighborhood, you cannot take those kinds of chances. "

The man was driving a newer model black crossover SUV, police said.
