Local Police Seek Flasher Who Exposed Himself To Young Girls
Police from the 69th Precinct are looking for a flasher who exposed himself to young girls on their way to school on three occasions last week.
Detectives said there had been re-ports from the areas around three separate schools here of a man accosting young girls on their way to school, taunting them verbally, in two cases, and then exposing himself.
The first incident occurred on Tues-day, November 14 at 7:30 a.m. in the Holy Family School playground- next to the church rectory - when an 11-year-old and a 12-year-old were playing in the school yard and the man called to them and told them to watch him as he exposed himself. The girls immediately ran into the school and told a teacher, who chased the man for two blocks, but lost him. Police were called and a description of the man was given to them.
The second and third incidents happened just two days later, both be-tween 7:30 and 8 a.m. Two girls, one 11 and the other 14, were walking in front of I.S. 211 on East 100th Street and a man who was walking just a few yards in front of them abruptly turned around, muttered a profanity, and exposed himself to them. Both girls ran and told the principal of the school and police were called.
Only a short time later, a man ex-posed himself to two girls at the corner of Glenwood Road and East 101st Street.
This time, he didn't say anything and, when the girls ran to tell the principal of their school, he calmly walked away.
Police say the suspect is probably the same man in each case. He is des-cribed as black, about 160 to 180 lbs., in his 20s or 30s and clean shaven. He was wearing a blue leather jacket with black sleeves, black jeans and what was described as Timberland boots.
Parents should warn their children that if they are accosted by this man they should not go near him, but go to the school authorities or the nearest adult and report the incident.
Anyone with information is asked to call the 69th Precinct Detective Squad at (718) 257-6215. All calls will be kept strictly confidential.
