PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. — Port St. Lucie police are searching for a man who exposed himself in front of a home.

“I think it’s totally unacceptable. Nobody needs to see that,” said resident James Lee.

The homeowner did not want to go on camera but said the incident happened Sunday at 2:14 a.m. near the 1400 block of Southwest Edinburgh Drive.

WPTV reporter Zitlali Solache spoke with more than 20 neighbors near the site who were uncomfortable speaking about the incident but hoped an arrest is made soon.

“it’s scary you know, and if we do see him again and I hope that the police are around to get him before we do," Lee said.

Lee lives down the road from where the incident occurred.

“This neighborhood is full of kids and young women and this is not tolerable and hopefully he doesn’t come back by here again," said Lee.

Port St. Lucie police believe this is an isolated incident — and they may know who the man in the video is.

Master Sgt. Dominick Mesiti told WPTV on Wednesday that police have "identified a person of interest and our detectives are following up on that development." However, no arrest has been made.

“Hopefully he’ll be caught and come to justice because it’s totally unacceptable," stated Lee.

The homeowner told WPTV it's important that neighbors come together to catch this individual.
