Students report indecent exposure near bus

EDMOND — An Edmond parent concerned about potential worse behavior by the suspect told officers her daughter saw a motorist exposing himself during a ride on a school bus, according to an incident report.

On April 8, Police Officer Roger Shortt took an indecent exposure report from the parent of a fifth-grade student at Northern Hills Elementary School.

Earlier that afternoon between 3:40 and 3:50 p.m. during the ride home, the student was sitting near the middle of the bus on the left-hand side near a window, Shortt stated.

She observed a white male about 40 years old with a slim and muscular build and a reddish mustache and goatee driving a white pick up alongside the bus as both were heading east on Danforth, Shortt stated.  

The victim told her mother the man was wearing a white T-shirt but he did not appear to have pants on, Shortt stated. She could see his private parts and it appeared he was fondling himself, Shortt stated. He looked at her and when they made eye contact he smiled, the report stated.

He was alone in the vehicle and was wearing sunglasses, Shortt stated.

Shortt stated the parent said apparently several of her daughter’s fellow students on the bus saw the incident, and she was concerned it could lead to worse behavior from the suspect.

Shortt stated he spoke to a second parent who said her daughter and two friends told her about the incident on the bus; at the time it occurred she did not have details about it.

Edmond Public Schools spokeswoman Susan Parks-Schlepp said incidents like this are rare but if they occur the district contacts the Edmond Police Department.

“After the incident, district transportation officials notified all of our bus drivers to be on the lookout for a white pickup truck near or around buses,” Parks-Schlepp said. “None of our drivers reported seeing anything suspicious.”

Parks-Schlepp said the district always advises students to tell an adult if they see or experience anything that makes them uncomfortable. This student absolutely did the right thing by telling her mother, Parks-Schlepp said.

Police spokeswoman Jenny Monroe said there are no other incidents being investigated regarding this suspect at this time.
