The Associated Press
LONGVIEW — A man who was exposing himself took off running after a Longview woman pulled out a gun and pointed it at him.
The Daily News reports that around 8 p.m. on Wednesday the woman was at Lake Sacajawea when a man approached her aggressively while masturbating and suggested she should watch him.
Instead the woman pulled out her gun.
Longview police detective Kyle Sahim says officers haven’t found the man Thursday evening but are investigating several suspects.
The victim called police later in the evening, saying she was looking at an online database of local sex offenders and believed she recognized the man she saw at the lake.
