Man in pickup truck exposes himself to three young girls

Amherst police are asking for help in locating a man they said exposed himself to three Dodge Road schoolgirls Thursday afternoon.

The incident happened at about 3:45 p.m. The girls, all 11 years old, told police they were walking home after their school bus dropped them off on Brenridge Drive. A man drove by slowly in a pickup truck, exposing himself, police said.

"Naturally, they ran off, but the problem is they didn't tell their parents until four hours later," said Ronald H. Hagelberger, assistant police chief.

The suspect is in his 40s, with a medium build, short, brown hair and a light complexion. His hair may be gray, and he has no facial hair. He was driving a newer model blue pickup with red lettering.

Those with any information are asked to call the Amherst police at 689-1311 or to use the confidential tip line, 689-1390.
