ST. PETERS, MO (KTVI)-- A teenage girl saw a naked man fondling himself inside a car in the parking lot of a St. Peters library Tuesday, according to the St. Peters Police Department.

The police also said that the man asked the girl if she needed a ride and where she was going.

It happened outside the Spencer Road Library.

"That is sick, and I really can't believe that happened here," St. Peters resident Cordell Ewell said. "Why would he try that here when he can do that somewhere else."

Police said the girl was able to get away from the suspect.

"It is crazy and scary that these kind of things happen," St. Peters resident Jessica McKay said. "Very scary thing."

Police said the suspect was 30 to 40-years-old. He had dark hair and a goatee. He also had a tattoo of an Irish Flag on his arm. He was in a Nissan Xterra.

If you have any information call the St. Peters Police Department at 636-278-2222.

"I really hope they get this guy because this is not safe," McKay said. "Just disgusting."
