NOBLE, Okla. - It was a disturbing ordeal for a young girl in Noble Monday morning.

Not even two blocks away from Curtis Inge Middle School, a man allegedly exposed himself and made lewd comments to a young girl walking to class.

“She tried running into the school and he pulled into a driveway to try to block her and she pulled out her phone. And as soon as she pulled out her cell phone, he drove away,” Kristen Holmes, the victim's mother, said.

Kristen Holmes said her 12-year-old daughter was shocked by the middle-aged man's aggressive behavior.

“That's the innocent age. They're not supposed to know that kind of stuff. There's things I had to explain to her yesterday that she should have not known for a few years,” Holmes said.

Now, the girl's mother is not taking chances. She says she is driving her daughter to and from school.

Police are also stepping up patrols.

"This really is an isolated incident for us. We don't have many of these so we've taken it very serious,” Chief Keith Springstead, with the Noble Police Department, said.

“I'm sad that it happened to mine, but I don't want it to happen to any other kids also,” Holmes said.

“My daughter's got to go through life with this experience,” Holmes added.

Noble police say they are looking for an overweight middle-aged white man wearing a dark blue shirt and jeans.

The vehicle of interest is a bluish green four-door car.
