(WMC -TV) - A Memphis man is facing a long list of charges after he exposed himself in a park near a group of children, according to police.

Police said there was no physical contact between the man and the children in the park, but what they saw him doing was disturbing enough.

"The park is really nice. It's a good park," said park regular Charlotte Middleton.

It is directly next door to Raleigh Egypt Middle School where police took a call about an exhibitionist. They arrested Terrance Parker for indecent exposure.

Police said mother Kiva Renfroe was sitting on a park bench at the workout equipment area near a large crowd of children.

According to an affidavit of complaint, multiple witnesses saw Parker fondling himself while looking at children anywhere from 5 to 12 years old. He then took out a towel that he used to wipe off.

Neighbors said children fill the park daily.

"I can't believe he would be actually doing that," said Renfroe.

She said Parker's alleged act should have remained private, and far from a public park full of kids.

Parker's bond is a $100. He is due in court Thursday morning.
