“Dear PoPville,

I just wanted to make people in the NoMa neighborhood aware of a situation I encountered this morning. As I was walking towards the NoMa metro station, there was a man on the 400 block of M Street NE who was exposed and touching himself. He was just standing off to the side of the sidewalk and watching people walk by. He ran south on 5th Street as soon as I got my phone out to call 911, but I was able to give a pretty good description of him to the 911 dispatcher. He looked like he was in his 40s, black, heavy set with a white t-shirt, dark jeans and dark hat, and a beard. He did not appear homeless – his clothes were clean and I noticed he had a phone. I have heard other reports of someone in the neighborhood exposing himself, but I am not sure if this is the same guy.”

    There are a couple individuals on here who live in the vicinity of your spotting who might fit your description.

    From what I understand, some of these guys can escalate from showing to sexual assault.

    They also often will approach young girls (junior high, high school) and it can be quite menacing. Please report this to the police, people, even if you’re not directly scared of them. The “next person” might be a kid.

    I’ve seen all kinds of crazy stuff at Florida and 4th NE. A couple weeks ago, during a walk to union market, a drunk homeless man started swinging a plastic bat at me and my same sex significant other. Then he started yelling homophobic remarks about us and George Bush

    Saw the same guy last year at 5th and M and called the cops. Thanks for making sure to report him. Hate that he’s still out there.
