Officers Arrest Sex Offender For Exposing Himself at Kids Soccer Game

East Precinct officers arrested a sex offender on Capitol Hill Thursday evening after the man exposed himself to a group of children playing soccer in Cal Anderson Park.

Around 8:50 pm, police got several calls about a man standing next to a soccer goal in the park, grabbing his genitals and yelling obscenities at children on the soccer field.

The man then dropped his pants, flashing his g-string underwear.

Officers arrived and spoke with the man, who told officers he was “just dancing,” and claimed he hadn’t done anything wrong.

Not buying the man’s story, officers arrested him, and discovered the man has a prior conviction for indecent exposure.
