PHOENIX – Phoenix police are looking for a man who exposed himself to a 13-year-old girl walking to school Friday morning.

The Raul H. Castro Middle School student was walking alone near Earll Drive and Pinchot Avenue at 8 a.m. when the suspect called out to her, according to Sgt. Trent Crump.

The victim ran home and her family called police.

The suspect was described as a Hispanic male in his late 20s or early 30s with short black hair, wearing a red shirt and faded jeans.

The suspect's vehicle was described as a green four-door car with tinted windows.

The suspect has not been located.

The school principal sent a letter home notifying parents and asking them to discuss safety precautions with their children.

Raul H. Castro Middle School is located near Thomas Road and 79th Avenue.

Tempe police are also investigating an indecent exposure incident. A man reportedly exposed himself to two teenage girls near Marcos de Niza High School Monday afternoon.

That victim was described as a white male, 20 to 25 years old, clean shaven with a medium build and wearing a blue striped polo shirt. The victims said he was driving a gray car, older than 2005, with an unknown Arizona license plate.
