Police are searching for a man who exposed himself to a female two days in a row this week in the Chicago Lawn neighborhood on the Southwest Side.
About 7:40 a.m. on both Sept. 7 and 8, the female was walking to school near South Rockwell and West 61st streets when the man walked up and exposed himself, according to a community alert from Chicago Police. The man then ran away.
He is described as a 180-pound, 5-foot-8 black man, between 30 and 35 years old, with brown eyes, black hair and braids, police said. The man was wearing a dark-colored top and blue jeans.
Anyone with information about the incidents is asked to contact Area Central detectives at (312) 747-8380.
