EVANSVILLE, Ind (WEHT) – Police have taken a man into custody after receiving reports that he was exposing himself.
Officers were called to the 1300 block of Rotherwood Ave near Taylor Ave just before 5:30 p.m. Saturday. The caller said a white man wearing shorts, a white shirt, and a white beanie approached her juvenile daughter, told her she was pretty, and asked her to come to the shed with him.
