Nassau County police said the incident occurred near Camp Avenue Elementary School around 2:50 p.m.
The 13-year-old boy told police he was northbound on Merrick Avenue near the school when he saw the man, in a white SUV parked on the west shoulder, exposing himself and conducting the lewd activity. Police said the teen described the man as bald, clean-shaven and wearing sunglasses and a white button-down shirt.
