Redmond

Police still looking for child-flasher

No suspect has been located after an incident Monday in which a man reportedly exposed himself to a 12-year-old girl walking home from school along the border between Redmond and Bellevue.

Redmond police remind parents that as children get out of school for summer and have more unsupervised free time, child predators may become more active.

The Redmond Police Department is offering a child-safety class on Monday that teaches parents and children how to avoid these situations and gives them practical scenarios to work through together.
