ROCHESTER, Minn. – Another indecent exposure incident has been reported at Quarry Hill.

Rochester Police tell KIMT it's the third incident this summer at the nature center.

Two females, ages 16 and 18, were walking on the trail near the overlook when they saw a male walking in the area around 8 p.m. Sunday. The females allege he walked past them multiple times and at one point ran toward them with his genitals hanging out as he touched himself.

The man is described as a white male, around 6-foot with black cap, blue shirt and black basketball shorts.

No arrests have been made.

Sue Schruers, or Rochester, rides her bike on the Quarry Hill trail at least once a week. She's heard of the issue and isn't surprised it happened, especially due to the location.

"People like that like isolated places, but know that people come," Schruers said, "so that they get their jollies out of that."

She thinks women should have a safety plan.

"If you're not biking or riding with somebody else, you definitely need to have a phone to call 911," Schruers said, "and try to remember where exactly the location is where this may have happened to you and get away."

Police reiterate to always be aware of your surroundings. They also want to remind people that ear buds and other distractions make you vulnerable.
