Memphis man accused of exposing himself outside of day care

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - A Memphis man has been charged with indecent exposure after police say he exposed himself outside of a day care.

The incident occurred near the Jessie Mahan Center, which is a school and day care for children between the ages of four months to 5 years old.

On Tuesday, an employee saw 53-year-old Calvin Murphy sitting near the day care.

According to an affidavit, the employee noticed Murphy had his pants off and was displaying his penis and genital area. He began making a jerking motion with his penis and the employee yelled, “I’m going to call police.”

Murphy drew closer to the iron fence on school property and watched the school children before fleeing the scene.

On the same day, a parent also reported seeing Murphy outside of the school and alerted police who then took him into custody.

Murphy is a registered sex offender in Tennessee for two separate rape convictions in 1987 and 1996.
