BASTROP, Texas (KXAN) — Authorities in Bastrop are searching for a man, they say, exposed himself to a 12-year-old girl Thursday.
Bastrop police said at an unknown time, a white man between 20 and 30 years old wearing a green shirt and jeans was hiding behind a bush at the entrance to 122 Old Austin Highway. When the girl walked by, police said the man got her attention by saying “excuse me” and then exposed himself.
