Students at Hudson’s Bay High School are being warned of a potential flasher in the area of Fort Vancouver National Park.

Two girls on the school’s track team said they were running through the park on Tuesday when a man drove next to them an exposed himself.

A spokeswoman for the Vancouver School District said an email warning of “stranger danger” was sent to administrators at the district’s schools Wednesday alerting them of the incident. A letter was not sent home to parents, but it was left to administrators share the information as they “deem appropriate,” Pat Mattison said.

The girls were not injured and ran toward a group of people as the man drove off.

Hudson’s Bay and Clark College are both near Fort Vancouver National Park.

The suspect is described as a heavyset white or Hispanic man with dark hair and wearing a white T-shirt. The car was reported as an older sedan that was either green or blue.

“We always want those types of incidents reported right away,” said Kim Kapp of the Vancouver Police Department.

Anyone with information is asked to call the police department.
