Indecent exposure reported near preschool program

By CHRISTIN COYNE

Police received two separate reports Dec. 21 of indecent exposure by a white male in the 600 block of West Water Street near a building housing the Head Start program, according to CID Sgt. John Rudolph.

Two adult complainants reported seeing a man exposing himself and masturbating in public, police said.

One 25-year-old woman told police she was getting into her car to leave when she saw a man standing nearby who had his pants unzipped and was exposing himself.

The man did not speak to the victims, Rudolph said.

Police are following leads and have stepped up patrols in the area, Rudolph said.

Voicemail messages left for Headstart officials Friday afternoon regarding the incidents were not returned by deadline.

Weatherford ISD spokesman Derik Moore said principals of area schools were notified of the incident and were sent an email with the suspect’s description.

Police car vandalized

A suspect or suspects caused significant damage to a Weatherford police Dodge Charger sometime between Saturday evening and Monday morning, according to a Weatherford police report.

The vandalism caused about $5,000 of damage to the patrol vehicle and included a punctured passenger side rear tire, a broken rear light lens and orange spray paint on each body panel, the overhead light bar, the push bumper, the front license plate, the glass windows and the wheels and tires, according to police.

The vehicle was parked in the north parking lot of a car dealership outside the service garage in the 1000 block of Fort Worth Highway, the report stated.

The City of Weatherford reported they do wish to pursue charges on the incident, being investigated as criminal mischief, more than $1,500, less than $20,000.

Aggravated assault

A woman was arrested Christmas day on a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after Weatherford police responded to the 100 block of Mimosa Street in reference to a disturbance.
