DELTONA, Fla. - An 18-year-old made a creepy discovery in her backyard when she looked out her window and saw a man touching himself early Saturday morning at her home off Babcock Avenue in Deltona.

According to an incident report, the teenager said she was lying on the couch in the family room when she heard a knock at the window. The girl told deputies the blinds were closed, the curtains were drawn and she did not see anyone.

After about 15 minutes, she said she spotted a man through the sliding glass door exposing himself under her backyard porch light. She ran upstairs, looked out the window and watched him run off.

Investigators said the teen described the perpetrator as an older, "chubby" white man with a green hoodie. She did not get a good look at his face because of the hoodie, according to the report.

Neighbors in the Babcock Avenue neighborhood said they are frightened by the news.

"That scares me that it's this close to where I live," said Lisa Stephenson, who lives just down the street.

"This is the first time that I hear something like that," said another parent, Johanna Betancourt.

Anyone with any information on this incident is asked to call the Volusia County Sheriff's Office.
