MEMPHIS, Tenn. --  One mother wasn't having it when she said her 14-year-old daughter saw a man touching himself in his car while waiting at a bus stop.

The incident happened at a busy shopping plaza Friday around 7 a.m. at the corner of Overton Crossing and Frayser Boulevard.

"He was raised up doing that. You could see him. He was raised all the way up in the car," the mother said.

"My daughter, she just did that. She just covered her face."

The man took off fast in a red or burgundy Toyota Corolla with tinted windows and missing hubcaps. Mom wasn't far behind.

"I just wanted to run him up out the parking lot."

Not long after, police were called to the Memphis Business Academy on Overton Crossing, where staff told them the same man started pleasuring himself in front of a student outside the school and then beckoned for the student to approach him.

Police want to know if the Frayser flasher is the same man tied to a string of similar incidents in other parts of town.

That man was once arrested for pleasuring himself in front of two women at a bus stop.

Another time, he was even busted on a bus.

"Why they continue letting him out knowing that he's around here doing things like that?"

WREG asked both Memphis police and the Memphis Business Academy if parents could expect patrols in light of this incident, but didn't hear back.
