“She said the man told her he had been trying to get her attention, the report states,” OCSO officials said.
The second incident happened on Nov. 17 when a woman told an employee at the nearby grocery store that a man had exposed himself to her. A report states that she did call 911, but was put on hold for 10 minutes and hung up after receiving no response.
