A woman living at MorningStar Ministries told deputies that her encounter with a trespassing teen became indecent when he exposed himself to her.

   The 27-year-old woman said she was sitting on the steps of a bunkhouse Monday afternoon when she saw the teen walking through the parking lot. She watched him touch several bicycles that were locked up under a pavilion on Starlight Drive, according to a sheriff’s report. She yelled at him to stop messing with the bikes, and he came toward her.

   “When he approached her, he began cussing at her and saying vulgar things,” the report says. “(She) then told him to leave, and as he began to, he pulled his pants down in front of her and began masturbating.”

   She told him she was going to call the cops, and he fled into the woods toward A.O. Jones Boulevard, a report says. She described him as a black male, age 15 or 16, wearing black pants and a black shirt. 

   Officers checked the area and couldn’t find him.
