This evening, Tuesday February 4, 2014, at 4:45 p.m, North Precinct officers responded to the area of Northeast 45th Avenue and Stanton Street on the report that a male exposed himself to a 9-year-old boy outside a home in the neighborhood.
Multiple officers responded to the area and began search for the suspect, described as a white male in his 40s, 5'9" tall, heavy build, dark brown hair, a short scruffy beard, wearing a white t-shirt and blue or turquoise boxer shorts.
The victim told police that the suspect ran northbound on 45th Avenue, stopped in front of a residence in the 2800 block, dropped his pants in front of the child, then ran away, last seen eastbound on Stanton Street.
