The student told police the suspect driving a four-door pickup pulled up across the street, exited his truck, opened his pants and exposed himself.
The student ran home and alerted a parent, who called police.
The suspect is described as a white man in his early 20s, driving a “jacked up” white pickup. The exhibitionist was wearing a white T-shirt and red Nike tennis shoes. The pickup had chrome wheels and possibly a lift kit.
