BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) – Baton Rouge police are looking for a fast food drive-thru employee after a woman claims he exposed himself in the drive-thru window. Nicole Williams her children were at the Jack in the Box drive-thru window on Foster Drive when the incident happened.

"I placed my order, I went to the window to retrieve my items and the employee, who appeared to be kind of confused, exposed himself to my children and myself," she said.

Williams says it was her 12-year-old daughter who first noticed the man with his pants unzipped.

"I lost it. I was very uncontrollable. My children were frightened and I didn't think about the consequences until later, but I reacted to what I saw."

Once she calmed down, Williams called police, who identified the accused worker as Andre James Denardo. Police say Denardo, 26, denied he did anything wrong.

"If we could look at the video that would resolve this conflict we had between the woman saying he was exposing himself and the man saying he was not," said Sgt. Don Kelly with the Baton Rouge Police Department.

While police were at first unable to view surveillance video, detectives were able to do so Friday and said the video was "inconclusive".  They have still issued a warrant for Denardo's arrest for "obscenity".

Denardo is described as 5'9" in height and weighs 140lbs. He was last known to be living on Robertson Drive in Baton Rouge.  He no longer works at the Jack in the Box.

"It's a very serious case," Kelly said. "Anyone who will commit that sort of act has some real problems and you don't know at that point if this is the beginning of him escalating into other types of sex offenses."

Meanwhile Nicole Williams says she's still waiting for an apology from the restaurant.

"But I'm not going to let it sleep under the rug," Williams said.

Jack in the Box has not commented on the police investigation. If you can help police find Denardo, call Crime Stoppers at 344-STOP.
