A 37-year-old man has been arrested for allegedly exposing himself while driving around Jacksonville's Murray Hill neighborhood.

On Thursday, April 15, JSO officers responded to a call in the Murray Hill area about a man exposing himself to people. Social media posts reported more similar incidents involving a man driving a red Chevrolet Impala.

JSO said the posts helped lead to the suspect, 37-year-old Savery Antwan Morgan. He was arrested on Wednesday.

At the time of his arrest, Morgan worked with young dancers at the Florida Ballet in Jacksonville, and he has previously worked with children at Duval County public schools. The Duval County Public School district did not reply to WJCT News' request for comment by this story's deadline.

The Florida Ballet has placed Morgan on paid administrative leave and sent letters to the parents of children he taught, letting them know of his arrest, according to WJCT News partner News4Jax.

If residents happen to spot an incident like this again, JSO encourages them to call police directly at 904-630-0500 or call 911 in the case of an emergency.
