SANDY (News4Utah)- Police in Sandy are asking the public for help identifying a man accused of exposing himself to a 9-year-old  boy over the weekend.

It happened around 7 p.m. on Saturday at The Shops at South Town.

“While his pants were down the male told the child to ‘come closer’,” police said.
