TULSA -- Megan Jackson is in shock after a man exposed himself to a family at the same park where her son plays near Cooper Elementary.

“I’ve never heard of anything like that out here it’s a really nice neighborhood, nothing really ever happens out here it’s really quiet all the time,” said Jackson.

Police said the mother and her child were at the park Tuesday night, when a Hispanic male shouted, “Hey,” to get their attention. Officers said when they turned around, they saw the man exposing himself and making inappropriate gestures.

“I probably would have tazed him and called the police,” said Jackson.

The incident happened on the 1800 block of South 123rd East Avenue.

Investigators said the woman and child immediately turned away, but they said the man changed locations in the park and continued exposing himself.

“That’s awful that anyone would think to do that. I mean what kind of people are out there,” said Jackson.

Police said the woman was able to snap this photo of the man. Nearby security cameras also got pictures of this black Nissan Altima that investigators believe belongs to the suspect. Jackson said anyone who would do such a crude act in front a family, deserves to be behind bars.

“So he can’t just go around parks and places like this with children around,” said Jackson.

If you see or know the man police are searching for, call Crime Stoppers at (918) 596-COPS.
