On Saturday, February 9, 2013, at approximately 5pm, a lone female complainant stated she was walking in the 2300 block of P Street, NW, about to cross the P Street bridge walking towards DuPont, when she observed a subject standing off to the side of the west end of the bridge. As she passed she noticed he had his pants down to his ankles, fully exposing his genitals while staring directly at her. The victim hurriedly passed the subject and attempted to warn two females that were walking in the direction of the subject. As she explained to them what she observed him doing, the subject hastily mounted a bicycle and fled west bound on P Street in the direction of Rose Park.
The victim described the suspect as a white male, approximately 40 to 50 years old, of medium height, wearing a blue jacket.
