Bangor police are investigating a report of a man allegedly exposing his genitals to students walking on Garland Street last week.

On Jan. 4, two students reported having been followed by a middle aged man driving an SUV as they walked on Garland Street. This man allegedly exposed his genitals to both students before driving off.

After saturating the area, police have not yet been able to identify a suspect.

School resource officers and the Bangor School Department were made aware of the alleged incident. The case remains under investigation.

School officials on Jan. 9 released a letter to parents urging them to remind their children of ways to stay safe.

Those suggestions include:

  • Never talk to strangers.
  • Stick to a safe route home and walk with a peer or group.
  • Make sure students know how to say “no” if someone they don’t know offers them a ride.
  • If approached, move away quickly; yell and run for help to an area near people; call 911 if the student has a cell phone.
  • Be aware of traffic and the surroundings.
