The woman said she hid inside her home and called police. The suspect, identified as Erig Craig, 38,  was arrested, the TV station reported.

“It didn’t seem real. It still doesn’t seem real,” the woman, who asked not to be identified, told the station Monday.

She said she was using her phone outside her home when the man began shouting from across the street, saying he was interested in her, according to WKRN.

“He was yelling that he wanted me. That he wanted to come in my house,” she said. “I just had a very off feeling about him, just from looking at him. He came across the street, walked up my stairs, stood there and stared at me.”

The woman said she ran inside and locked the door.  “That’s when he pulled down his pants,” she told the station.

A responding officer witnessed Craig yelling at the woman from her porch while touching himself, WKRN reported.

Craig was arrested and charged with assault, indecent exposure and trespassing.
