    Authorities said the man pulled up in silver four-door sedan that did not have tinted windows.

    The man reportedly made eye contact with the juvenile victim, exposed the lower part of his body and proceeded to touch himself. Deputies said the girl immediately looked away and the man drove off in an unknown direction.

    Investigators said the man is 20 to 30 years old, with short dark hair, dark eyes and diamond studs in both ears.

    “Somebody that has malice to go up to a child and expose himself and harm children like this. We fear that it could be a case and we need to identify this guy and arrest him as soon as possible,” said Maj. Jacob Ruiz of the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office.

    Crimeline is offering a reward up to $1,000 for information leading to an arrest.
