WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- What started off as a fun day at a local playground in Capital Hill Thursday afternoon quickly changed after several mothers told WUSA9 they saw a man exposing himself while sitting on a bench nearby.
"I was just really shaken up. I called my husband on our walk home right away. Everyone was fine, but I was crying," Stacy Durand, a mother who was at Stanton Park while the man exposed himself said.
Durand, who frequently visits Stanton Park with her son, was here at 1 p.m. Thursday when the incident happened.
There are no bathrooms near the park, and sometimes when the little kids can't hold it they go in some bushes near a bench.
"They were pulling down their pants to go potty, and he was watching them and doing you know what to himself," Durand said.
Parents immediately left the park and Durand called 911.
