A man exposed himself to a girl who was on her way to school earlier this week.

The Suffolk County Police Department said that on Tuesday the high school student was walking on Thicket Drive in Cold Spring Harbor around 8:20 a.m. when a man drove up to her, opened his sedan’s door and exposed his genitals. At that point, police said, the suspect called her over to the car.

She ran away and told security personnel at Cold Spring Harbor Junior/Senior High School, who contacted the police.

Police described the perpetrator as a young-looking Hispanic male in his 20s, with black hair shaved on the sides but long in the center, where it was pulled in a bun. His car was a small, tan-colored sedan with four doors.

Authorities are seeking the public’s help to identify and locate the man, who is wanted for public lewdness.

A Sound Beach man was arrested on Friday morning after he allegedly exposed himself to people on a bus in Ronkonkoma.

The Suffolk County Police Department said the suspect, 26-year-old Shawn Marshal Raghunandan, was sitting in a 1999 gold Infiniti and exposed himself to the adults in a minibus that had come to a stop at the intersection of Route 454 and 13th Avenue in Ronkonkoma.

According to police, the bus was occupied by members of AHRC, a nonprofit that works with people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

The bus driver called 911 after the 8:20 a.m. incident, police said, and officers located the Infiniti a short time later. They arrested Raghunandan and charged him with public lewdness.

Attorney information for the defendant was not immediately available. He was scheduled to be arraigned at a later date.

Police arrested an elderly man on Monday, three weeks after they say he lured children with candy while masturbating.

The 87-year-old Lloyd Harbor man was sitting in his gray 2011 Subaru at West Neck Beach on the afternoon of Aug. 10, when he allegedly offered candy to nearby children. The Suffolk County Police Department said a woman who was at the beach with the kids went up to the Subaru to intervene and saw that the suspect was not wearing pants and was masturbating.

Detectives from the SCPD’s 2nd Squad investigated the case, and on Monday afternoon arrested Horseshoe Path resident Galip Gulmez. He is charged with public lewdness and with endangering the welfare of a child.

Attorney information for Gulmez was not available Tuesday morning.

According to police, the suspect was scheduled to be arraigned on Tuesday.
