Police say early-morning walkers and joggers reported seeing a man jump from some shrubbery and flashing park visitors on Tuesday. Witnesses told police the man was nude and only had a shirt covering his face.
"I just heard that he comes out right before sunrise and he likes to hide out," neighbor Karen Alvanez said. )"Apparently when you are running by or something, he just shows everything."
The flasher's description and behavior is similar to numerous reports police have been investigating at the park since last year.
"Part of me is like, really, I got up out here to come see this? No! So, it's anger, frustration. Don't ruin my time for myself," neighbor Stacie Gibbins said.
Recently, a man was arrested for allegedly exposing himself at TC Jester Park. Investigators are not sure if that accused individual is responsible for the new exposure reports.
Police say the unidentified flasher typically targets in the early morning hours. They say he may be driving an older model Oldsmobile.
Neighbors say they're now asking the city to trim back some of the shrubs in the park. As police increase patrol in the park, officers with SEAL Security are increase patrols in the neighborhood where they believe the man may be parking.
"We've actually increased our patrols out here. We're also working some of the areas with marked units as well as unmarked units," said James Alexander with SEAL Security.
Officers are encouraging anyone who sees the flasher to immediately call 911, avoid contact with the man, and get as good a description as possible.
