WOODSTOCK, Ga. - Police are looking for a man who exposed himself to a 13-year-old boy at the entrance to a Woodstock neighborhood.
The victim was able to help GBI investigators complete a composite sketch of the suspect that was released Tuesday.
"It's shocking and disturbing," said Christina Pallas.
Woodstock police said the man exposed himself to the boy in the Deer Run subdivision Thursday night.
The suspect is described as a white male, 25-35 years old with shaggy brown hair.
Police said he was wearing a black tank top, blue jeans and black shoes.
"We are concerned about anybody who could put the safety of our youth in jeopardy," said Brittany Duncan, spokeswoman for the Woodstock Police Department.
The young victim told police that he was walking home on Running Deer Parkway around 9 p.m.
The boy says the flasher jumped out of the bushes at Moccasin Trail and exposed himself.
"If they've done it once, they'll do it again and that's going to be very alarming for any kid who has to go through that experience," said William Norman.
Police said the young man reacted quickly and called for help.
