“Dear PoPville,

There was a flasher at 7:30 Saturday morning in the 1400 block of Columbia Rd.
Here’s what happened.

There I was just walking my dog early this morning and it is freezing. I look across the street, about to cross the road to go back inside when I see standing in the glass doorway of the main door to MY building, a TALL beige man, in a white robe that dragged to mid-way down his calf. He was standing with his hips pointed toward the street, and in a robe. When he saw me glance toward the building, he grabbed the wings of his robe, and slung it WIDE open. He opened up, showing his dong when he saw me looking his way. Thank god he didn’t do the helicopter.

My neighbor was walking her dog too…. and saw him. She chased after him —- much braver than me. She saw the flasher run to the basement of our building. She didn’t see where he went. The flasher could live in this building. or as I’d rather believe, he could have escaped out the back door.

Either way, I’m not crazy, my female neighbor saw it too. And there’s a flasher.

Have you had any other reports like this???”

Ed. Note: In August we had a report of a flasher in Meridian Hill Park.
