OREM -- Police in Orem arrested a man accused of exposing himself Thursday to several people, including children.

Police received multiple reports about the man. One report came from the parents of several young girls.

"He was walking down the road. Three 12-year-old girls were walking the opposite direction," said Sgt. Craig Martinez with the Orem Police Department. "When they approached him, he pulled his pants down -- exposing himself. They ran home, told their parents and they called us."

Police said the man went on to flash passing cars on State Street.

Orem police were unable to find the suspect until Provo police caught and cited Ji Wang for lewdness. Orem police have since interviewed and arrested him -- saying he was the same suspect they were looking for.

Detectives are encouraging any other victims to give them a call.

"If we can find more victims that this may have happened to, we can keep charging him with as many misdemeanors as we have come up with the lewdness stuff," said Martinez.

Anyone with information should call the Orem Police Department at 801-229-7070.
