Newark police are trying to track down a man who flashed a woman at a busy convenience store.

Carrie Hupp says the incident happened while she got her morning cup of coffee at the local Circle K on Monday.

A stop at the store is just part of the morning routine for Hupp.  But what happened next on Monday was anything but normal.

"I turn to my right and there's a guy standing there with his private out," said Hupp. "I yelled at him. I said 'are you f--ing kidding me' and he kind of looked at me funny and walked out."

Hupp has seen the man several times walking up and down 30th Street, but she doesn't know his name and has never encountered him at the store.

The clerk also said she knew the man.

"She said I wouldn't expect that out of him. Well, it just happened," said Hupp.

The run-in rattled Hupp. Her thoughts wandered to her daughter and the "what if?" had she been there also. She decided to report it to police.

"You know, I thought about it all day, it was pretty scary," said Hupp. "I'm glad nothing else happened. It could have been worse, that's for sure."

Police were looking into getting surveillance video. The store manager didn't want to comment on what happened.

Police are reviewing surveillance video from the Circle K to see if they can identify the suspect.

They also planned on interviewing the clerk who witnessed the incident.
