Police Blotter : Man exposes himself at Lincoln Meadows

Police are working to identify a heavy-set white male approximately 30 years old who reportedly rang a doorbell at the Lincoln Meadows apartments around 2:50 p.m on the 3400 block of Fourth Avenue East Thursday and then proceeded to fondle himself.
