Watch Out for this Man!
Indecent exposure occurred on the evening of 9/17/14, at the corner of 10th and B Streets in the St. Rose Neighborhood. In the words of the couple who saw this incident: “Encountered a sick man while walking our dog. He had parked his car in front of the apartments down the street on 10th Street. We were talking to the little kids who always want to pet the dog. He walks up and goes towards the apartment parking lot. He proceeded to expose himself and peed. We chased him off. We took down his license #. He drives a late model white Toyota Camry. #7CCUO84. He is around 70 and disheveled looking. White hair and unshaven.”
