A Tallahassee man is behind bars 6/28 after allegedly exposing himself to children. Some of these details are graphic.
Leon County Deputies arrested 29-year-old Marcono Clary at his home off Chloe Circle Tuesday for exposing himself to children back on June 10th while they were walking on the St. Marks Trail.
Timothy Swaney a Woodville resident said, "I see families riding bike out there all the time. That's a family place. They don't want to see some grown man come up naked. Nobody wants to see that."
The youngsters, ages 15,13 and 6 told deputies, they were walking on the Trail in Woodville near Chloe Circle when a man came up to them and pulled down his pants.
Clary driveway leads right to the St. Marks trail and the kids told deputies when they tried to run, he followed after them."
Nancy Bodiford a concerned Woodville resident said, "Best not do that in front of my grandchildren. That's all I've got to say."
"I don't want my little brother and sister seeing some grown man showing off what he's got." said Swaney.
The detailed description from the three children led investigators to Clary's door step.
"There's perverts everywhere out there. They're all over the place. You just have to watch your children very well." said Bodiford.
Resident Pat Cardinale added, "I just don't think I'd let them (the children) go out until I knew this person had been put away. You know, because you never know how far someone like that will do. If they do their pants, they may go further than that."
