SOUTH HUNTINGTON, NY (CBSNewYork) - There have been two disturbing flashing incidents near St. Anthony’s High School in South Huntington, Long Island.

Brother Gary said in his 10 years as principal, this is the first time he has heard of anyone exposing themselves to students in the neighborhood.

He told WCBS 880 reporter Sophia Hall that last Thursday, two students called 911 after they were followed by a man in a tan-colored SUV near the school.

On Monday, two 11th graders reported that while walking back from the Walt Whitman mall a man had exposed himself to them.

“Our young women knew exactly what to do,” Brother Gary said. “They got themselves out of the situation, called the police.”

Brother Gary put out an e-mail warning all parents and students about the two incidents.

“I find it pretty heinous and I find it disturbing,” he said.

So far, no arrests have been made.

Brother Gary told 1010 WINS students offered a vague description of the suspect.

“It would probably describe 75 percent of Suffolk County but we certainly do know that he is not over 50 and not 15,” he said. “It did narrow it down just a little bit but I wish we had just a little bit more.”
