Dd was eating with me right near the school in a cafe, two teen boys (14ish) came in causing trouble and were sent out, one came and danced behind dd with no top on through the window then pulled his pants down flashing her, he then came into entrance an.. pulled his pants down again waving his penis at another group of small children. They scattered when challenged. It was just after school time and they came from schools direction.

Is it worth contacting school so they cannot try I'd them.

I would but I would probably also contact the police.

Remotecontrolduck Mon 18-Feb-13 18:57:03

YANBU, tell the school, that's disgraceful behaviour!

BegoniaBampot Mon 18-Feb-13 18:57:23

Tell the school in case there have been other incidents or it happens again.

gordyslovesheep Germany Mon 18-Feb-13 18:57:26

yes and the police

WorraLiberty England Mon 18-Feb-13 18:57:58

Call the Police

They'll contact the school and the cafe owner to try to find out who they are.

AvidMarion Mon 18-Feb-13 18:58:13

YANBU - I agree, contact school & police

Sugarice Mon 18-Feb-13 18:58:59

I would certainly get in touch with the school and point out what happened, that's really disturbing about him exposing himself.

I'd also give thought to letting the police know, exposing yourself in public is an offence after all .

First call the police!

Flojobunny Mon 18-Feb-13 18:59:36

I'd contact the police first.

MariusEarlobe Mon 18-Feb-13 19:00:08

I can't really describe them other than vaguely but there are cameras in there and the staff member threw them out and apologised to us so probably could.

Bloodymary Mon 18-Feb-13 19:00:18

YANBU, school and the police.

Police and school.

mummymeister Mon 18-Feb-13 19:00:59

Call the police. they are over 10 they are responsible for their own behaviour. this is disgraceful from lads at this age and it needs to be dealt with. would also speak directly to the school and make sure the cafe owner deals with it as well.

Not unless they were in uniform.

You couldnt tell who goes where round these 'ere parts - there are 14 mixed secondaries within a 5 mile radius

WorraLiberty England Mon 18-Feb-13 19:03:55

If the Head is worth his/her salt, they'll take a look at the cafe's CCTV and try to identify them.

Either way, the Police should be called and left to investigate.

GingerbreadGretel Mon 18-Feb-13 19:06:34

Yes and the police. In our borough all local schools are informed of any incident so they can keep an eye out.

MariusEarlobe Mon 18-Feb-13 19:07:03

Holly it's not like that where we were, no other secondary for three miles, the nearest other one is a new school with only year 7 at the moment and it definitely wasn't one of there's.

MariusEarlobe Mon 18-Feb-13 19:07:49

And the cafe is literally at end of school exit.

DoctorAnge Mon 18-Feb-13 19:08:42

Police and school. This could escalate to something more serious.

MariusEarlobe Mon 18-Feb-13 22:44:38

I've contacted the police now, I wasn't going to because it was teens being stupid but seeing you all thought I should. I have emailed school and said I understand it might not be their school but would appreciate them looking into it.

ZebraOwl Mon 18-Feb-13 23:39:48

Glad to hear you've contacted police & school.

How old is your DD? Did she really understand/register what happened? I know it's cringey & obviously you don't want to create drama/distress her but if you've not already done so & it's reasonable for her age/level of understanding, I think you should talk to DD about what happened & let her ask questions etc.

YANBU - glad to hear you have contacted the police and the school. What an unwelcome event for you. I advocate spilling your pineapple juice/coffee on the next gougers who give that a try.

MrsJamin Tue 19-Feb-13 05:28:24

I have no idea why you would even hesitate in reporting this to the school and police. How odd.

MariusEarlobe Tue 19-Feb-13 08:01:19

To be honest my first reaction mrsjamin was it was just teen boys being really silly and the police wouldn't do anything especially as I can't really describe them. (was trying to ignore).

Dd is fine and thought it was hilarious hmm
It was only afterwards that I thought about it properly and thought if he's willing to flash little kids in a cafe now what is he doing with kids his own age in the playground at school especially as my dd will go to this school.
