KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Kansas City, Missouri, Police Department is looking for a man who exposed himself to women near the Brookside and Waldo areas.

According to KCPD Sgt. Jake Becchina, the incidents happened on Tuesday morning.

The first incident happened just after 7 a.m. near West 57th Street and Summit Street. The second time it happened at 7:40 a.m. near West 70th Street and Brookside Road.

Bechinna said on both occasions the man pulled up to two women, got their attention and then proceeded to expose himself to them.

The man was driving what may be either a dark gray Toyota Camry or Honda Accord.

Becchina said that police want people to be looking out for each other.

"If you do go out for a walk or a jog, make sure [to] let somebody know that you're going, what your intended route is even if it's just texting a friend or something like that," Becchina said. "If you can go in pairs, that's obviously helpful too. That way you can kind of keep an eye out for each other. We advise people take their cell phones with them. Be ready to snap a photo or something like that if you see something out of the ordinary."

Anyone with information is asked to contact KCPD or call the Tips Hotline at 816-474-8477.
