  • It’s about damned time.

  • “Detectives are investigating whether the suspect has been involved in other offenses”

    in other words – whether this is the same guy that numerous women have been saying for months was walking around Georgia Ave masturbating himself in front of them?
    If so, damn shame it it took him exposing himself to children to get arrested.

  • I wonder if this is the same guy I saw in front of my house last year?

    lol re: other incidents, we have the complete record of them right here on PoP!

  • While I’m happy to hear he’s been arrested, it’s more than a little disturbing that multiple reports called in by women over the past year or so went (apparently) un-investigated by MPD. It took the guy finally “crossing the line” and exposing himself to kids to get them to act (and it seems a little bit of an investigation actually–shocking!–resulted in an arrest…crazy what actual police work leads to…) . Of course, in my book exposing yourself to *anyone* is crossing the line. Shame on MPD. You think any of them have the brains to realize that had they put some effort into this sooner it wouldn’t have reached the point where he showed his junk off to school children?

    • Why are you so sure that there’s only one person doing this?

      • Search the archives.
        In August, a woman posted here about a man exposing himself to and masturbating in front of her in the area of Sherman-Irving-Georgia. A number of women chimed in that they had had encounters with a guy matching the description doing the same things in front of or near them. In September, someone posted about a guy matching the description of the person described in the August thread, who had exposed himself to her. Since this arrest concerns an incident that happened in the same area as the other earlier incidents, there is an assumption that it could be the same guy.

    • That is the first thing I thought of too.

      Multiple women report a man exposing himself, MPD do fuck-all about it.

      Kids report it, and lo and behold, arrest made.

      Thanks MPD and Cathy Lanier for letting me know how important women’s safety is to you. Glad to know you’ll do jack shit if I report something like this.

      This is a “prop to the cops” on one hand and a “screw you women says MPD” on the other.

  • When do we think he’ll be back on the street doing this again? Next week?

  • you can search facebook and find his profile.

    • this gem is, per his facebook profile, married. but has “done a lot of people wrong” and for that he is sorry.

  • Sucks that it seems to have took involvement of minors to finally get MPD’s attention on this.

  • So glad they finally caught the bastard. I reported him masturbating out in front of my house last year. The cops came and just told him to leave. I saw him again about a month ago when he flashed me at 11th and Irving, but he hopped on the bus before I could take a picture of his face to report him. Hopefully exposing himself to children will get him more than just a slap on the wrist this time.
