(KMOV) -- Police are warning residents after they say a man exposed himself to a woman walking to work in the Central West End Wednesday morning.
Authorities said a woman was walking near a busy parking garage near the intersection of York and Maryland around 10:45 a.m. when she saw the man performing a sex act on himself.
Authorities said she called police, who drove through the area Wednesday but could not locate the man.
Residents are concerned if he’s not caught it could lead to more crime.
“It could escalate to something more and that’s scary ‘cause just when you think things are calming down and getting better things pop up like this and makes you wonder are your really as safe as you think you are,” said Kimmy Nguyen, who lives in the area.
