UA police are looking for a motorist who was reported by a student Wednesday for public sexual indecency.

Around 10 a.m. Feb. 28 on Fairway Street west of Harmon Avenue, a student called UAPD to report that a man had asked her for directions, and when she turned around, he was masturbating, according to the UAPD Daily Crime Log.

The man was described as a white male in the age range of 45-55 years old and around 160 pounds with brown and gray hair, UAPD Capt. Gary Crain said. The man was seen driving a small red Honda.

“In past cases like this, the offender usually does it again.” Crain said. “We are having patrol watch out for the vehicle and looking into other aspects of the case, along with talking to other agencies.”

This case is the first one to happen on campus, and it has been awhile since it has happened in this area. UAPD is investigating the report and will arrest the man if seen, Crain said.

Anyone who sees a man meeting this description and is not threatened should call UAPD at the number 479.575.2222, Crain said.

A person commits indecent exposure if they are arousing themselves or any other person in a public place or under circumstances that the person knows it will cause alarm, according to Arkansas code 5-14-112.
