Police looking for man accused of exposing himself to woman in Fairview Heights neighborhood

Police are looking for a man accused of exposing himself Wednesday afternoon to a woman walking in a residential neighborhood. 

The woman told police she was walking near the intersection of Dunhill Drive and Willow Spring Hill Drive shortly before 5 p.m. when a man in a minivan drove slowly up beside her and called for her attention, police said.

 

"When the woman looked over to the man, she observed him sitting in the driver’s seat, partially unclothed, and performing a lewd act," police said. The man drove away and was last seen heading south from the intersection. 

 
 

Police released a picture of the man's vehicle Thursday and described him as a white man who is about 40 years old with short, light brown hair.

 

The minivan was caught on surveillance video by an area resident's camera. Police described the vehicle as a white, early 2000's Dodge Caravan in poor condition. At least one of the van's Missouri license plates appeared to have been covered up, police said. 

Authorities ask anyone with information about the incident or the whereabouts of the man or vehicle to call the Fairview Heights Police Department at 618-489-2130.

Tropical storm Nate turns deadly as it heads toward Mexico and the US

After battering portions of Central America, Tropical Storm Nate is expected to reach the US Gulf Coast this weekend as a hurricane.

The storm already has killed at least 22 people in Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Honduras, where it caused widespread flash flooding and mudslides, officials said.
Nate is forecast to gain force as it approaches the Yucatan Peninsula late Friday and strengthen into a Category 1 hurricane by the time it makes landfall late Saturday or early Sunday along the US Gulf Coast, the National Hurricane Center said.
 
 
    "It will still be fairly strong when it makes landfall, but it will be a quicker moving storm than the last few we have had," CNN meteorologist Haley Brink said. "It's supposed to be in and out pretty quickly."
    Parts of the Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama coastlines were under hurricane, storm surge and tropical storm watches Friday. The storm could drop 3 to 6 inches of rain, with 12 inches possible in some areas, the hurricane center said.
    Nate had maximum sustained winds of near 45 mph Friday morning and was moving north-northwest at 14 mph.

     

    Widespread Spectrum outages reported

     

    Widespread Spectrum outages are being reported across the country, including in the St. Louis area.

    According to the site downdetector.com, outages are being reported in many parts of the country, including Los Angeles, Minneapolis, Chicago, Detroit, Atlanta, New York and Boston.

    However, a map on the site shows large outages in St. Louis and Dallas.

    Spectrum was formerly known as Charter.

    A spokesperson said the outage was caused by two different incidents. The company said a non-company construction crew severed a fiber optic line in St. Charles County. 

    The company also said there was an unrelated incident in the afternoon in St. Louis County and work is being done to resolve the situation.

    A spokesperson said they hope to have the issues resolved quickly.

    Other information was not immediately known.
