Warren police are searching for a man who allegedly exposed himself to a mother after she put her kids on the school bus.

The woman put her 9-year-old daughter and 6-year-old son on the school bus at Schoenherr near Frazho. And as she was walking home, listening to music, she was waved over to a man in a car in a parking lot. 

She only wants us to call her by her first name, Amber. 

She told 7 Investigator Jim Kiertzner, “I’ve heard of it happening to other people. I was kind of dumfounded, 'oh my God. This is actually happening'. I’ve been sick all day about it.”

Amber says the man in the car had exposed himself and more. 

“I looked in and said, 'what’s up?' I was pausing my shuffle," she says. "That’s when I noticed he was masturbating.”

She did not get a good look at the guy’s face. 

She tried to call 911, but could not dial the number in the heat of the moment. She was laser focused on the license plate as the guy drove away and made a full report with Warren Police. 

They’ve also spread the work at Briarwood Elementary to be on alert. 

Police will only say they’re working on the case. They won’t say if they’ve made contact with the guy, based on the license plate.
