OXFORD - Parents of Oxford students received a shocking call from Superintendent of Schools Allen Himmelberger on Monday, January 29. He opened the call stating that he “regrets to inform that a white male in his thirties with spiked red hair and driving a small black SUV with tan interior drove up to the bus stop” and exposed himself to students of Clara Barton Elementary School who were waiting to be picked up for school.
According to Detective Rick Bryn of the Oxford Police Department, the suspect passed the bus stop and then turned down Matthew Circle from Holly Street. He then made a three point turn about half way down the street and then made his way back to the bus stop. While stopped for the stop sign, he exposed himself to the children. There were four students present and no parents at the stop. Three of the children claim to have seen the act, while one says she didn’t see anything.
Police urge citizens to remain vigilant and on alert for vehicles or people who seem unfamiliar.
