“Dear PoPville,

While walking my dog this morning in Meridian Hill Park a man approached me and proceeded to expose and pleasure himself. I yelled that I would call police he quickly apologized, zipped up and headed out of the park. I contacted the police to report the incident and they confirmed they would contact officers in the area. This occurred on the far side of the park on the stairs closest to 16th Street and Florida. He was last seen heading down Florida towards 17th-18th Street area.

Description:
Hispanic Male
5 ft. 6 in.
Wearing: white tshirt, jean shorts and a navy or black back pack

Just a warning to those in the area, he approached casually, I honestly thought just harmless exchange of pleasantries, before I realized what he was doing.”

Ed. Note: MPD has alerted Park Police as well.
