Police: Man tries exposing himself to children in Parker

PARKER, Colo. -- A man allegedly tried to expose himself to two children near an apartment complex on Thursday, the Parker Police Department said.

Police responded about 4:30 p.m. on a report of a suspicious incident.

They said the children, 8 and 11 years old, were approached by a man at the Clubhouse Apartments (19600 Clubhouse Drive). The man asked if they wanted to see something and the children believed he was referring to his dog, police said.

The children followed the man to a second-level outdoor landing where he lowered his shorts at the waistline in an attempt to expose his genitalia, police said. The children took off and were not physically touched or harmed.

The man is described as a 30- to 40-year-old man with dark or tanned skin and spiky hair. He's 5-foot-8 to 5-foot-10 with a medium build. He was wearing black gym shorts, tennis shoes and a short-sleeved blue shirt. He had no facial hair or visible tattoos.

Anyone with information is asked to call Parker police at 303-841-9800.
