Man caught exposing himself, runners beware

BATESVILLE, AR (KAIT) – The Independence County Sheriff's Department says women who frequent the Oaklawn Cemetery near Fitzhugh Park in Batesville need to be aware of a man who has been caught exposing himself.

According to the sheriff's department, a man has been seen exposing himself at least twice to women in the cemetery. An officer confirmed that a woman who was running in the cemetery Tuesday night initially saw the man standing next to a tombstone. The officer says when she later came back, the man in question was watching her with his pants down.

Police say the man is known to have exposed himself during the late afternoon and evening hours, and that they do have a suspect in the case. Police, however, have declined to release a name.
