Ashland police are searching for a man who was allegedly exposing himself to children near Sloan Avenue and Vine Street. 

Police said they received three reports on Tuesday regarding a man who was showing his genitals to several children. 

One parent of a victim said the suspect walked into her backyard while her 10-year-old daughter was playing outside alone and jumping on their trampoline. The girl screamed and then ran in the house. She told the parent about the man exposing himself. 

The parent told her child was traumatized due to the incident, especially after seeing the grown man's private parts. 

The man was described by police as being between 5 feet 9 inches and 5 feet 11 inches tall, weighed around 200 or more pounds, was wearing sweatpants with no shirt, and had a white shirt wrapped around his head. 

Anyone with information is asked to not approach the subject, but do call Ashland police immediately at 419-289-1911.
