A serial flasher exposed himself to two women and a teenage girl on Long Island, threatening one of them with a gun, police say. 

Police say a 17-year-old girl was walking home from Valley Stream High School on Tuesday afternoon when an approximately 25- to 30-year-old man pulled over in a car and asked her for directions. 

When the girl stopped to help the man, she noticed he was fondling and exposing himself and ran away, police said. 

Less than an hour later, the same man exposed himself to a 56-year-old woman on Brixton Road South in Garden City, according to police. 

And on Thursday, the man drove up to a woman as she was walking on Grove Street in Valley Stream and stopped, police said. 

The man then pointed a gun at the woman and demanded money while fondling and exposing himself, according to police. 

Police have released a photo of the car they believe the man was driving when the incidents took place. An investigation is ongoing.
