Sex Offender Arrested After Exposing Himself at Golf Course, Daycare

Police arrested a registered sex offender at a Beacon Hill golf course this morning after the 49-year-old man exposed himself on the course and in front of a nearby daycare facility.

Around 10:30 AM, police received a report of a man masturbating in front of a child care in the 4100 block of Beacon Avenue South. When officers arrived, they immediately recognized the man, who has previously been physically combative with police.

An employee of the golf course told officers they had asked the man to put his genitals back in his pants, but the suspect had refused and had made profane statements toward the employee. The suspect was also seen harassing two women, who were eating breakfast on the golf course lawn.

Officers contacted the man, who, according to a police report, was “actively masturbating” as officers were speaking with him. The man explained his penis was out due to a medical condition, and refused to surrender to police. Due to the man’s previous altercations with police, officers attempted to taser him, but were unsuccessful. The man ran a short distance until officers could get him into custody.

Police booked the suspect into the King County Jail for indecent exposure.
