The witness, who asked not to be named, tells 11 News the man flashed an elderly lady and some children Sunday evening. As of Monday night, Colorado Springs police say the man hasn't been caught. He gave police a license plate number of a car that may be associated with the flasher.
The witness saw the man exposing himself at a dirt track next to West Elementary School on Sunday afternoon. He was driving with a friend at the time. "Then he started swinging it at the old lady, and she decided to leave with her dog,” he said. “We flipped around to double check, and we noticed he was exposing himself to the public."
The witness and his friend followed the man as he walked to another park. He called police. According to him, the flasher later got into a car with his friends; they were driving a black Toyota with a damaged front end. "I reported the license plate to the police officers," he said.
11 News followed up with police on Monday to see if an arrest had been made. They say they weren't able to tell us what has been done, if anything, to track down the flasher or if they had looked for the car.
"If that's true, than that's great," Gary Jensen, who lives near the school, said. "Then they have something to follow up on. So...in that case, I would expect them to hand it over to the detectives."
The witness says he's concerned that police aren't doing enough. "I have two little kids, and if they were in the car... he was just right there on the street with no cares whatsoever,” he said.
11 News will continue to dig deeper on this story and will let you know if police make any arrests.
