A woman told Eyewitness News a man exposed himself to her inside Kannapolis' public library. The woman, who asked not to be identified, said he drew attention to his pants where there was a large hole. She said she was in a secluded area in the library when it happened.
"I knew he was doing it on purpose," she said. "It was definitely an intentional thing."
First, he asked to use her cellphone and made a few calls.
"A few minutes passed, and he kind of spreads his legs out, and there's a huge hole in his pants and his privates are sticking out of his pants," she said.
The woman said it looked like he made the hole in his pants just to flash her.
"It was completely cut open like it had been done on purpose," she said.
She said the man drew attention to the area by smiling at her.
"It was almost as if he was trying to pick me up that way," she said.
The woman said she got away from him and found a worker who helped her call police. She's shaken by the incident. It also has other people who frequent this library concerned.
"I think that's very sad and unfortunate for that person to be exposed to that," Elaine Ivy said.
Eyewitness News reached out to Kannapolis police. They said they couldn't prosecute the man because they couldn't prove he did it on purpose. The victim said police did all they could in the case, but she hopes he doesn't do it again.
"I don't know if he got some sort of thrill out of it or if he's ever done it before," she said.
Eyewitness News was told the man is not allowed in any Cabarrus County library after what happened.
