Man exposes himself to 8-year-old girl at elementary school

An unknown suspect exposed himself to an eight-year-old girl while she was at recess, according to Charlotte Mecklenburg Police.

Just after 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday police were called to the Park Road Montessori school at 3701 Haven Dr. for a report of indecent exposure.

Upon arrival officers were told by lower elementary school teacher Sherry Nobles that the 8-year-old girl said a man had exposed himself to her while she was outside during recess. 

Police are still investigating as the suspect has not yet been caught. The school released this statement to parents on the incident: 

Good evening. This is Melanie Francis, the principal of Park Road Montessori. I want to let you know that monitoring the safety of our children is our first priority. With that in mind I want to inform you that today during recess, a student was approached by a stranger not associated with the school. Immediate action was taken by school staff and the office was notified. At this point we are working with law enforcement to fully investigate the incident. Thank you for continuing to partner with us to keep your children safe by encouraging them to report any unusual activity. Have a wonderful evening.
