COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Parents  are hoping for the capture of a suspect who reportedly exposed himself to two middle school students Wednesday morning.  They were walking to school when this happened near the railroad crossing at Cusseta Road and Martin Luther King Boulevard.

Elementary kids were also nearby."I think it's scary, I think that somebody that would go specifically by two schools, junior high and elementary and expose themselves to kids there has got be something wrong with them first of all," said parent, Robin Berky.

Robin Berky has two sons that attend J.D. Davis Elementary School. "We as parents have to protect our kids, all kids. If you see something like that happening, we need to say I'm not afraid to call police," said Berky.

A statement issued by Muscogee County Schools' communications director describes the suspect as a black male, about  5 feet 7 inches tall, dark-skinned, with a bald head. 

He's believed to be 20 to 30 years old and was wearing a white and blue collar shirt, jeans, and tan colored Timberland boots.

Lakeia Whatley, who also has a child who attends school in that area, says she simply wants answers.

"You know I wouldn't want my son to see anything like that, because it's inappropriate you know kids pick up habits like that. I feel like the police department needs to get involved," Whatley said.
