The following highlights are from Ferndale Police Department reports.
Man exposes himself in parking lot
A woman told police an unknown man approached her and eventually began masturbating in front of her as she sat in her parked car on W. Troy Street around 2:30 a.m. Nov. 27.
The victim told police she left an area bar around 1:30 a.m. and went back to her car to smoke, with her car window partially down. As she smoked, a white man in his 20s wearing a hoodie approached her and began talking to her. They spoke briefly and then she looked away, not wanting to talk to him, according to a police report. When she looked back, she noticed that he had exposed himself and was masturbating.
The suspect then tried to engage the woman, saying things like, "It's OK." The woman eventually drove away and called a friend when the man would not leave her alone, the report states. Her friend encouraged her to contact police.
Fight at Digital Learning Center
