DES MOINES – Local 5 On Your Side is following up with Des Moines police on where they are at on a case of a man exposing himself to children in a local neighborhood.

Our crews covered this story on Friday. Witnesses told us that a man was flashing their children while driving in a car. They filed a police report, and they asked for more patrol in the area. Local 5 On Your Side followed up with investigators on Monday to see what’s being done to find the man.

“We had a little bit of information from the two of them,” said Sgt. Paul Parizek with the Des Moines Police Department. “We recognize there might be some similarities there, so we’re trying to put all those pieces together and get a good suspect profile right now. We’ve got some general ideas on what we’re looking for, but we want it to get it narrowed down to who we’re looking for.”

Parizek said that if anyone has information or witnesses another incident, call police right away.
