PHOENIX – Police in Phoenix are searching for a man who allegedly exposed himself to an unsuspecting 15-year-old girl Tuesday morning.

It happened at about 6:30 a.m. According to Sgt. Tommy Thompson of the Phoenix Police Department, the teen was in the area of 12th Street and Claire Drive, which is near Lookout Mountain Preserve north of Thunderbird Road, when a man driving a white minivan pulled up alongside her.

Thompson said the man stopped and asked the girl for directions. The teen saw that the man was naked and told him that she could not help him.

The man got upset, but he did not try to touch the girl nor did he attempt to get her into his vehicle, Thompson said.
