JACKSONVILLE -

Police in Jacksonville are looking for a man who they believe flashed school children Friday morning.

Investigators said the suspect is wanted in connection to several incidents of indecent exposure that occurred at approximately 7:30 a.m. in the Northwoods area.

The investigation has revealed that a man in a late model red car approached students walking and bicycling to Northwoods Park Middle School and Parkwood Elementary School and exposed himself.

The suspect is described a man in his mid-20s with an olive complexion, with very short dark hair and no facial hair.  He was wearing blue and red basketball shorts and a gray colored T-shirt.  The vehicle is described as a late model red car with four doors.

Anyone with information about the incidents is asked to call Crimestoppers, which is offering a reward of up to $2,500 for information leading to arrest.  Callers to Crimestoppers at 910-938-3273 are not required to reveal their identities.
