Family-friendly lifestyle ruined after obscenity complaint
DENHAM SPRINGS - The Livingston Parish Sheriff's Office is investigating an obscenity complaint in the Pecan Creek subdivision, off Dunn Road.
Around 3:00 Sunday afternoon, an unidentified man asked two teenage females for directions. During the conversation, the man began unbuttoning his pants and exposed himself to the girls. The girls ran away.
They described the man as white, between the ages of 18 and 24, with brown hair in a bowl haircut. They said the man was driving a newer model, white, 4-door Nissan Altima with an Alabama license plate.
Neighbors saw reports pop up on their subdivision Facebook page and couldn't believe what they were reading.
"I thought it was a misprint at first when I read back through it, because it's just not something you would expect to happen," said Lacey Procell.
Pecan Creek is a quiet neighborhood where children often play in the streets. But, about 24 hours after reports surfaced, the lifestyle of this family-friendly community had changed. Monday evening, there were not as many people outside, including Procell's son.
"It's always been safe, nothing has ever happened here," she said. She said her son was frightened.
The Livingston Parish Sheriff's Office hopes tips can lead to the development of a suspect and eventually an arrest.
