As the children were making their way to their classes at their respective schools this morning, the Detroit Public Schools Police were reviewing a new surveillance video of a pick-up truck they believe is being driven by a serial flasher on the city's west side

.
The most recent sighting of what Detroit Police are saying may be a ‘serial flasher’ was at about 8:20 this morning. Detroit Public Schools Police have now released the new surveillance video which shows a pick-up truck they believe is being driven by the man responsible for flashing young middle school aged girls on their way to school.
Police are trying to find that truck and identify the man, who since January has exposed himself at least ten times to young girls walking to middle schools in Detroit.

According to Channel 7 Action News, Detroit Public Schools told police that the flasher parks his vehicle and waits for the young school girls as they try to cross the street. As the girls are waiting for the traffic to clear, the man gets their attention and then gets out of his truck wearing only a shirt, as he exposes himself to the school girls. He has also stepped out of the truck completely naked.

The Detroit Public Schools Police gave a description and a sketch has been released. The suspect is described as a black male in his mid-40s with a dark complexion. He is bald, but has been seen both with and without a full salt and pepper beard.
The suspect's vehicle is described as a green Dodge Ram pickup. The vehicle has been seen with a green cap on the bed as well as without the cap. The truck may have 4x4 written on the rear bed of the vehicle.

The suspect has reportedly been seen on or near the following streets in the Detroit areas:
Lyndon & Sussex (8:20 am 5/28/2014)
Puritan & Cloverlawn
Pinehurst & W McNichols
Glendale & Grandmont
W. Chicago & Wyoming
LaSalle & Calvert

One again, it is time to remind our kids not to walk alone, stay away from strangers, and report anything or anyone that makes them feel uncomfortable.
If you have any information pertaining to the suspect or the vehicle, please contact the Detroit Public Schools Police at 313-748-6000.
