St. Francois County, MO (KSDK) -- Officials from two different police departments in St. Francois County are reporting incidents of men making actions that were sexual in nature towards younger females.

Police in Park Hills say they had two separate incidents over the weekend. The first occured on Friday evening, when a white male exposed himself to two females in their early teens behind a business. The girls yelled and ran away in another direction. No one was injured.

A second incident occured the following day around 1 p.m. A white male exposed himself to a group of young girls and they also yelled and ran away. No one was injured.

Police in Park Hills describe the 'flasher' as a white male, skinny, short blonde hair, no mustache or beard, unshaven, around 5'8-5'10. They don't have a vehicle description.

Police in Desloge, which is the town right next to Park Hills, also reported a similar incident over the weekend. They say around 8:15 p.m. Friday evening they received a call in reference to 4 juveniles on the street, 2 male and 2 female.

The kids said a white male in his 30s approached them on the street and asked for directions to a location in Desloge. When one of the young girls stepped up to the man's vehicle, he allegedly solicited oral sex for money from her. All 4 children ran from the scene and the suspect fled.

Police say one of the girls, who is 9-years-old, described the suspect as a white male in his early 30s with a patch of hair on his chin and a possible patch of hair that is dyed. He was driving a black Ford Mustang.

Police in both Park Hills and Desloge are working together to see if all of these incidents are connected. They say it is unclear at this point if they are, however they are not ruling it out.
