Austin police are asking for community assistance in identifying a man who reportedly exposed himself to children outside of two Austin schools.
Police say they've received three reports of a man who inappropriately approached children outside Webb and Pierce middle schools on Oct. 31 and Nov. 1 as the children were walking to school. All of the children were uninjured and able to get away from the man.
The first reported incident happened outside of Webb Elementary School in the 7300 block of Duval Street between 7:50 and 8 a.m. The man is described as a light-skinned, Spanish-speaking Hispanic man, about 30 years old, clean shaven, wearing a gray t-shirt and blue jeans. He drove a green four-door car with a sunroof up alongside a girl and offered her money. Then he parked his car in her path and exposed himself to her, according to officers.
In the second reported incident, on Nov. 1 at 7:05 a.m. outside Pierce Middle School, a man described as a Spanish-speaking Hispanic man, about 30 years old, wearing a gray sweatshirt with “Aeropostale” on the front drove up to a girl in a dark green sedan and asked her to come closer, offering her money.
Then at 7:30 a.m. Nov. 1 at Webb Middle School, there was another report of a Spanish-speaking Hispanic man, about 30 years old, with light brown hair, stubble on his face, wearing a light brown polo shirt and jeans with a black belt who drove a light beige sedan alongside a girl and asked her questions. The man told the girl she was pretty and he exposed himself to her, then he said he’d come pick her up after school.
Anyone with information about these incidents asked to call APD’s Child Abuse Unit at 512-974-6880.
