CAPE CORAL, Fla. -- A Cape Coral woman says a man exposed himself while hiding in the bushes near a Del Prado Boulevard gas station Tuesday night.

According to a police incident report, the 56-year-old victim says that around 9:30 PM Tuesday, she stopped at the Murphy U.S.A. station to put air in her tires when she saw a man in the bushes with his genitals exposed.

She initially tried to ignore the man, until he coughed in an attempt to get her attention.  When she looked again, she says he was masturbating.  The man fled when she grabbed her phone to call police.
