Durham police are investigating two reports of indecent exposure in the Trinity Park neighborhood over the last two weeks.
On Sept. 22, a woman reported a man asked her about the weather around 3 p.m., and then walked into the park and started masturbating in front of her and her children, said Wil Glenn, a Police Department spokesman. The police report says the incident took place on the 1000 block of West Trinity Avenue, but the neighborhood park is located at 410 Watts St.
An email to the Trinity Park listserv said the incident took place at the Trinity Park park. It says the man sat down on the same park bench as the woman.
The woman described the man as white and in his 30s with reddish-orange hair. She said he was about 5 feet 6 inches tall and 160 pounds. The man was on a green motorized scooter.
