AUSTIN (KXAN) — Police are asking for help in finding a man who has been exposing himself near a pair of schools in North Austin, they say.

Authorities said the two occurrences happened near Westwood High School and Grisham Middle School, both Round Rock ISD campuses.

Austin police say the students were approached by a black man in his early 20s in both instances. The students were uninjured and managed to get away from the man. The victims told police they were walking to school when it happened.

“I’m concerned, you know, like any parent,” said Cheryl Williams, whose daughter walks to school. “I would like to know more.”

They say the man is 6 feet tall with a thin build and a beard. He was wearing white basketball shorts, a hoodie and a plaid mountain cap.

The first instance happened on Jan. 9 near Lake Creek Parkway and Hickory Stick Cove about 8:30 a.m. The second occurred on Jan. 23 in the 10800 block of School House Lane about 8 a.m.

Police say the man was on Lake Creek Parkway standing in the street and bushes, when he exposed himself.

Williams says even in their safe neighborhood, she tells her kids to be cautious

“I always tell them to be familiar with their surroundings, you know, don’t take for granted that people know you here,” Williams said.

Anyone with information about these incidents asked to call APD’s Child Abuse Unit at (512) 974-6880.
