Weatherford Alerting Parents After Man Exposes Self To 3rd Girl
WEATHERFORD (CBSDFW.COM) – Weatherford Police are spreading out around schools after learning of a third incident of a man exposing himself to young girls. Three times in two days, girls have reported a man in a maroon pickup truck approaching them. All three incidents happened in neighborhoods across the street from schools.
Weatherford ISD gave out warnings and tips to students in all 11 campuses Monday. The incidents started Thursday on Russell Street just west of the Weatherford 9th Grade Center.
“He hollered out to them, drew their attention to them, and as they turned and looked at them, they could see he was exposing himself to them,” said Corporal Wendy Field.
The same day, two more girls a block away on Brazos reported a similar incident. In both cases the girls described a white man in his 20’s, with a buzz hair cut and glasses. They said he was driving a two-door maroon Toyota pickup truck. It had stick-figure, family stickers in the back window.
Police spread out in the area Friday to keel students safe. While they were there though, several miles to the south across from Weatherford High School, another report came in. This time an 11-year-old girl was the victim. Police said several weeks ago a jogger in that same neighborhood made a similar report. There was no description of the vehicle or driver in that case because it was dark.
Parents outside the 9th Grade Center Monday were surprised to hear of a third incident.
“Now I’m going to become more cautious and we’re going to talk and were going to go home and talk with daddy,” said Lisa Foster.
Police said they have been following up on several tips, but none have panned out so far. A $1,000 Crimestoppers award is being offered for information leading to an arrest and conviction in the case.
