NEW ORLEANS - The News Orleans and Tulane University police departments are on the lookout for a man accused of exposing himself several times Thursday night in locations in and around the Tulane and Loyola campuses.

WDSU-TV reports a woman contacted campus police to say she was walking toward the intersection of Freret and Calhoun street when a man stopped her for directions. As they were talking, the victim noticed the man was touching himself inappropriately. This was the second incident of the sort in just a little more than an hour in the area.

Police said the situation happened a third time to another woman at 8:15 p.m. near the same intersection.

Tulane University officials said the man was described the same way each time. The victims all said the suspect was a white male around 40 years of age. He was described as bald and was wearing a purple LSU polo shirt. Victims statements indicated he was driving a silver or gray SUV-type vehicle with a decal on the back window depicting a family.

NOPD and Tulane Police are investigating the trio of incidents. Anyone with information is urged to contact NOPD at 504-821-2222 or Tulane PD at 504-865-5381.
