PARK HILLS, MO (KFVS) -

A 22-year-old man is in custody after police say he exposed himself to several children in Park Hills, Mo.

Nicholas Jordan Hager, 22, of Park Hills was arrested on charges of attempted enticement of a child, attempted child kidnapping, first degree sexual misconduct and second degree sexual misconduct 

Park Hills police say Hager is a convicted sex offender and a resident of St. Francois County.

He is currently on parole. 

Hager told investigators that he "exposes himself because he gets mad at his wife."

Park Hills police say Hager approached two little girls around 10 p.m. Friday behind a gas station. They believe he also exposed himself to three little girls Saturday morning in an alley near a park and gas station.

According to the police probable cause statement, Hager also allegedly exposed himself to a woman on the Farmington Wal-Mart parking lot. He was tracked down by investigators after the woman gave police his license plate numbers.

According to the probable cause statement, Hager told police that he did expose himself to three female children behind the Dollar General Store,  two other children behind C-Barn convenience store, and a woman on the Wal-Mart parking lot in Farmington. 

Meanwhile, just before the incident in Park Hills Friday, Desloge police got a report of a man approaching a group of four kids on S. Harry Junior Street.

We are told a man in a Mustang asked where to find the park, and when one of the girls approached he then offered her sex for money.

That's when the kids ran away. Police believe Hager could be involved.
