CLAYTON COUNTY, Ga. - Police are on the lookout for a flasher who they said exposed himself in an elementary school parking lot.

A 20-year-old man who did not want to identify himself told Channel 2's Tom Jones a flasher was in the McGarrah Elementary parking lot when he stepped out of his car and exposed himself Tuesday morning.

He said no students or teachers were in the parking lot.

The man said he was riding his bike from work down Lake Harbin Road around 9 a.m.

He said a man in a black Mustang pulled up beside him and asked him something.

"'Do you need a ride?' he said. I just ignored him and kept going," he said.

He said the man then sped ahead him and parked at the school and waited for him.

"He got out of his car. And still trying to get my attention and then as he came out (and exposed himself)," he said.

The man, who looks much younger than his age, went home and told his parents.

His father, who also didn't want to be identified, was angry and worried about the safety of children at the school.

"If he do it on a school campus he'll end up doing it anywhere. This cat needs to be off the streets," the father said.

Parents were also alarmed that this could happen on a school campus.

"Oh my God. That's very scary. That's very scary," Latoya Edwards said.

The 20-year-old man says the flasher looked like a normal guy.

"He may not look dangerous but like looks can be deceiving," he said.

Police are searching for the flasher who was in a black late model Mustang with tinted windows and dealer plates.

He is an African-American man who is bald, in his late 20s to 30s and had on a red shirt with green camouflage pants.
