The school's Department of Public Safety put out an alert describing the incident, which happened around 12:30 p.m. Thursday as the female victim was walking through an alley between Dayton and Selby avenues.

According to the alert, when the student reached the street, a vehicle stopped and the male driver said something to her.

She couldn't hear, so approached him. As she got closer, the suspect "gestured towards his exposed genitals," the release says.

She walked away and reported it to public safety. The car went west on Selby Avenue, then turned north on to Finn Street.

The suspect is described as a white male, early 30s, with short light brown hair and a "5 o'clock shadow" of facial hair. Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call the St. Paul Police Department at 651-291-1111.

Indecent exposure, if it's a first offense and does not happen in the presence of a person under the age of 16, is considered a misdemeanor. The severity increases however if a minor is around, if the offender has previously been convicted, or if there are other aggravating factors.
