Man Who Exposed Himself to 15-Year-Old Girl Arrested

It all started on June 3rd at approximately 7:15 p.m. when the 15-year-old female victim and the 26-year-old male suspect boarded a Metro bus in the area of 15th Avenue SW and SW 102nd Street.  The suspect sat down next to the victim across the aisle.  The victim heard some strange noises coming from the suspect and she turned and looked in the suspect’s direction.  The suspect exposed his genitals to the victim and began masturbating.  The suspect then tried to solicit a date from the victim.  The victim was able to photograph the suspect before he exited the bus in the 6000 block of 16th Avenue SW.

Seattle Police Sexual Assault Unit detectives initiated an investigation, positively identified the suspect and disseminated a “be on the lookout” bulletin for officers. 

On July 31st at approximately 5:18 p.m. two King County Sheriff’s Office detectives spotted the suspect in the area of 15th Avenue SW and SW Roxbury.  They detained the suspect and called Seattle Police. 

Seattle Police patrol officers responded to the scene, took custody of the suspect and booked him into the King County Jail for Indecent Exposure.
