PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Police continue to look for a flasher who has exposed himself at least eight times in Northeast Portland, most recently on Thursday to three children near Beaumont Middle School.

Principal Elizabeth Casson-Taylor said the kids all did the right thing and ran home quickly. She suggests parents talk with their kids about these incidents, and the school sent a letter home to parents about it.

The flasher also ran off, as he has every other time. The descriptions are similar: a white man in his 20s to 30s, about 5-foot-8, a chubby build with dark hair. He wore a white shirt, white shoes and often holds a cloth over his face.

He’s exposed himself to women joggers in the early morning and school kids in the afternoon.

Police are patrolling the area around the school closely.
