NORTH FORT MYERS, Fla.-- A southwest Florida parent says a man exposed himself near an elementary school.

Lee County deputies say the woman was with her 9 year old in a parking lot near Tropic Isles Elementary.

She says a man in a gray Mercedes Benz pulled up and asked her directions. The man then touched himself, according to the woman.

The woman says the man asked, "Are you interested?" The woman then grabbed a knife and told him "Come near me or my kids and I will kill you."

The mother says she stepped out of her car but the man took off.
