Millard School Gave These Tips On Stranger Danger:

  • It is a good idea to walk with a friend.
  • Remind young teens to always refuse to go anywhere with people they don’t know.
    Younger children should know they are not expected to help adults with directions or lost puppies.
  • If a car stops and the driver attempts to ask for help, children should run away.
  • In potentially dangerous situations, it is a good idea to make lots of noise to alert neighbors and to run to a safe place.

Another confirmed report of a man exposing himself to a child this week. The latest happening near 174th Avenue and U Street Wednesday August 13th around 6:20 p.m.

Douglas County Lt. Rob Jones said a white man in a black four door sedan pulled up next to a 13 year-old girl. When she saw the man exposing himself she immediately went home, but the man followed her. When she arrived home, he drove away.

Thursday the Douglas County Sheriff's Department decided to up their presence in the area by adding extra marked and unmarked patrol cars.

Just a half mile away is Russell Middle School. Parents picking their kids up on Thursday were on edge.

"It's a sick world, I am sorry to say, but that is my opinion," said grandparent Sigrid Donahoe.

After the incident, Millard School officials wasted no time alerting parents.

"I first heard about it through an email from the principal here at Russell Middle School, and I was very shocked because it happened on the street we live in," said Vicky Kyle, Russell Middle parent.

The suspect is described as a white male in his late twenties to early thirties, driving a black car with flat (no shine) black paint.

The exposure happened on the heels of two other reported exposure incidents.

As a proactive move, the Millard School district has sent home letters for parents to alert them to the situation.

Instead of memories of their first day back to school, two young girls will remember Monday, August 11th as the day a man exposed himself to them.

"These girls were so shocked, they had no clue what to do. And cops are having to ask them questions that you shouldn't have to ask a 12 year-old, or a 12 year old shouldn't have to answer," said Rachel Samuelson, mother.

Samuelson's daughter had been with the two girls just minutes before the stranger drove up. The girls said they were walking down the street on 176th Avenue and J Street in the Woodcreek subdivision when the man rolled by masturbating in his car.

"I hope the cops find him first, because what he is doing to young girls is unacceptable," said Samuelson.

This was not the only indecent exposure in the Metro. Just before 1:00 p.m., Omaha police received a 911 call another man exposed himself at Zorinsky Lake.

Parent's playing with their kids at the park Tuesday were shocked by the news. "It's disturbing," said Meghan Brendon, mother.

Parents also said they want justice for the victims. "I just hope they find these people and then kinda make an example of them, so something like this doesn't continue to happen," said Daniel Nelson, father.

In both of these cases, victim's were able to give law enforcement vehicle descriptions, but not a license plate. Deputies and police said remembering license plate numbers are really important in these cases.

Police also urge victims to bring attention to themselves by yelling and screaming.

"This was a wake up call," said Samuelson.

Law enforcement does not believe the suspects are the same. One suspect is described as white male in his 20s driving a black sedan.

The other was described as a balding black man driving a red mustang convertible.
