DETROIT (WWJ) – Police and officials with Detroit Public Schools are looking for a man who they say has exposed himself a number of times to female students.

According to police, the man — described as being in his mid 40’s, bald, with a dark complexion and a mustache and a full salt-and-pepper beard — parks his truck at a corner on school routes. When a student crosses the street, police say that’s when he exposes himself.

The man has been seen with and without a salt and pepper beard, and in some incidents is completely nude. Other times he was wearing a white  “wife-beater” tank top without pants, police said.  He’s also said to have “darker lips” and a grayish tint to the white part of his eyes.

The suspect has approached young girls who were walking to school in the following areas: Lyndon and Sussex, Puritan and Cloverlawn, Pinehurst and W. McNichols, Glendale and Grandmont, and Chicago and Wyoming.

The subject’s vehicle is a 2000’s green Dodge Ram pick-up truck. It has been seen both with and without a green cap on the bed and may have “4×4″written on the rear of the bed.

Police said he’s wanted on charges of indecent exposure. None of the girls were physically harmed.

Anyone who recolonizes the suspects or who has  information about any of these incidents is asked to call police.
