Hillsborough County Sheriff’s deputies arrested a man on June 7 for exposing his genitalia to a 13-year-old girl.
Officials said on June 6 at around 1:30 p.m., the teen was walking in the parking lot of the Valencia at Westchase Apartment complex when she saw the 34-year-old man standing in the parking lot with his pants and underwear on the ground, exposing his genitals.
The teen went home and told her mother, who then contacted the Sheriff’s Office.
Detectives found the man and claim he admitted to masturbating in front of the teen. He was arrested and charged with a single count of Felony Lewd and Lascivious Behavior.
At this time, the Sheriff’s Office is not aware of any other victims.
