CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- On any given late afternoon or evening there are people walking or jogging along South Cedar Street near the campus of Johnson and Wales.

Last Sunday afternoon is when a bicycle-riding flasher exposed himself to a woman who was out for a walk.

The flasher is now the talk of the campus.

I mean it is just kind of shocking and sort of scary, said student Shanna Stewart, who was on her way to work out.

Last week the flasher struck in several spots including Freedom Park, South Boulevard, and East Park Avenue.

What worries many along Cedar Street is that last Sunday the flasher hit not once but twice on the same day.

If he takes it to another level I think that there is going to be concern here on campus, said Stewart.

The greenway near the Metropolitan Complex is always busy but even so, the flasher struck there too last Wednesday.

Overall I feel safe. Especially in this area. I have never had a problem like that, said Lindsay Zenga, who was out for a jog.

But another jogger, Kelly McGowan, said she did have a run-in six months ago with a flasher. It wasn't the same man but she said she still felt extremely violated and unsafe.

Because the incidents last only a couple of seconds, police don't have much of a description of the flasher. He is said to be a man in his late 30's or early 40's with a slim build and light brown hair.

Anyone with information that might lead to an arrest is asked to call Charlotte-Mecklenburg police at 704-336-7600.
