Indecent Exposure on New London Road

On March 15, 2019, at about 1000 hours, a female was walking northbound on New London Road (DE 896) in the area of Scotch Pine Road.  A small black vehicle, possibly a Toyota Camry, pulled onto the shoulder of the roadway and stopped.  The vehicle may have had Maryland tags.  The driver of the vehicle called the female over to his vehicle to ask for directions.  The female observed that the male driver had his pants down and he exposed himself to the female.

The driver is described as a black male, about 25-30 years of age, clean shaven and wearing a black hooded sweatshirt.
