An alert parent at Taylor Elementary School (2600 N. Stuart Street) called police on Monday upon spotting a half naked man near the school.
A mother saw the man sitting in a van near the school’s bus stop on N. 31st Street around 8:20 yesterday morning. When she noticed that he was naked from the waist down, she called police.
The person is described as a white male with dark hair, in his mid to late 40s. At the time of the incident he was in a white Chevrolet Astro van that had ladders on the roof.
Arlington County Police spokesman Dustin Sternbeck said the mother did exactly what she should have in this type of incident.
“If something doesn’t feel right, it’s better to alert police and let them investigate,” Sternbeck said. “The ACPD is following up on the incident and will have an increased presence in the area.”
If found, the man could be charged with indecent exposure.
