A man exposed himself on Monday to a group of Chesterton High School female athletes as they were running, Chesterton Police said.

The incident occurred after school on South 14th Street, south of West Porter Ave.

According to police, four girls were running on South 14th Street when a red four-door passenger vehicle stopped and its occupant, a white male 25 to 35 years old, exposed himself to them. There was no further contact between the suspect and the girls, who continued their run, then returned to CHS to report the incident.

CHS administrators immediately notified the School Resource Officer, CPD Sgt. Chris Swickard, who interviewed the girls and informed their parents, police said.

The CPD has opened an investigation, extra patrols are being added on the routes most commonly used by student-athletes, and the CPD is working closely with the CHS Safety and Security Team, police said.

“The safety of our students is always a high priority for the Duneland Schools,” Superintendent Ginger Bolinger said. “We responded to this incident quickly and continue to work with our local law enforcement regarding this incident. We seek community support to notify police of any suspicious behavior.”

Police Chief Dave Cincoski urged residents to report any suspicious persons, vehicles, or activity in their neighborhood or in the vicinity of any Duneland School, by calling 911 or the CPD directly at 926-1136.
