Man allegedly exposes self to kids in Dover, NH
DOVER, N.H. (WHDH) -- Parents are on alert in a New Hampshire community after reports of a man exposing himself to school children.
Dover, New Hampshire police say both incidents happened in the same neighborhood.
Waiting for the school bus has never been more important to mother of two, Anne Michaels.
“I’ve been really aware of kind of what’s going on in front of the house and around the area,” Michaels said.
The quiet Dover, New Hampshire community is outraged -- and on high alert --after two young students say they were approached by a man in his car who wasn't wearing any pants.
“I’m angry about it and a little bit scared, you hope the kids are safe,” Michaels said.
Dover police say the first report came in Wednesday; an elementary school student was waiting for the bus.
Then Thursday, it happened to a middle schooler walking home; two crimes in two days, both in the same general neighborhood.
“It’s disgusting that people would do that to innocent children. You feel your kids are unsafe walking down the streets,” said Kristy Jamiol, a parent.
“There’s anger for sure. You certainly don’t want that happening. We don’t know what it could have led to,” a mother said.
Both students told gave similar descriptions to police who are looking into whether they're one-in the same -- or at all connected.
The Dover School District sent out a pair of letters to families in town because of the investigation.
