A man exposed himself to two preteen girls near a playground in Hanover Wednesday night, according to Anne Arundel County Police.

The girls, 9 and 10 years old, told police they were walking past the Ridge Commons Playground around 5 p.m. when a white man in his 40s driving past made a U-turn and stopped in the street next to them. He started talking to them, and exposed his genitals while doing so, police said.

Both girls told police they had never seen either the suspect, who was wearing a black ski cap and blue jeans, or his vehicle, described as a 2-door silver car with a flat trunk. The man may have been wearing glasses, police said.

Anyone with information may call Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-756-2587.
