Police are looking for a man who exposed himself to a young girl who was walking to school in Astoria last month.
At 7:40 a.m. on Friday, April 7, a 13-year-old girl was on her way to school when she was approached by an unknown man in front of 29-22 36th Ave. After engaging the girl in conversation, police say that the man dropped his pants and exposed his penis.
