The Durham Police Department said late Wednesday that it is investigating an indecent exposure incident that happened around noon near the 100 block of the American Tobacco Trail (near the 1-mile marker and West Enterprise Street).
After the incident, a woman told investigators that she and her two children were approached by a black male from the opposite direction shortly after 12:15 p.m. The man exposed himself as she walked past him. The victim fled on foot as she attempted to ignore the suspect.
The suspect was described as a black male in his 20s, approximately 6 feet tall and 180 pounds with short hair. He was wearing a black jacket and dark jeans.
No injuries were sustained.
