Police say they are looking for a man who was seen exposing himself, and allegedly masturbating, on a local church's front steps early Sunday morning.

Jackson Police Department was notified of the incident when an employee of the Queen of the Miraculous Medal Church saw the man on the front steps around 7 a.m., Sunday.

Deputy Chief Elmer Hitt says the employee confronted the man, who then fled the scene. When police arrived, they scoured the area and could not locate the suspect.

The suspect is described as a white male, wearing a blue shirt and a skirt.

Hitt said they believe the suspect may have gotten into a vehicle, or a nearby residence. Anyone with information can contact the Jackson Police Department at 517-788-4100.
