CARNEY, Md. (WJZ)—Baltimore County Police are searching for the man who exposed himself to two young students.
Weijia Jiang has the warning for parents.
On Tuesday, Carney Elementary principal sent a letter home with students to let parents know what is going on. Police say it happened right down the street from the school.
The Carney Elementary School community is on high alert after police say a man flashed his genitals at two 9-year-old students.
“No matter where you are, these predators are riding around looking for little boys or little girls,” said Nancy Frampton, grandparent.
“I immediately talked to both my sons that go to this school and reminded them about stranger policies,” said Mark Cavey, parent.
Police say the two young boys were walking to school together when the suspect pulled up in a faded red vehicle on the 3400-hundred block of Upton Road, just a couple blocks away.
“The suspect offered to give the two victims a ride to school at which time they jumped into his faded red vehicle,” said Lt. Rob McCullough, Baltimore County Police.
The suspect dropped the kids off where Upton Road deadends and there is a path that leads to the school. But just as they were getting out of the vehicle, he unzipped his pants.
The police report reveals that the suspect also made several requests for the boys to rub his private parts.
“It’s concerning because I grew up in this area. To think that could happen at any given moment, you just have to be extremely careful and obviously keep close with your children,” said Kim Condax, parent.
The victims made it to school safely, but didn’t tell a teacher until several hours later. Now police worry the suspect may be looking for other children.
Police describe the suspect to be in his 40s, with a mustache and dental braces.
Police describe the vehicle as a faded red SUV or minivan. They believe there is a car seat in the back.
