Tallahassee, Fla. -- Tallahassee Police have captured an unidentified, male juvenile they believe responsible for the recent rash of indecent exposure incidents in the Southwood area.

According to TPD, they responded to an indecent exposure call Monday afternoon. The officers arrived at 3173 Mulberry Park Boulevard, which is the residence of Kimberly Norgren, who also made the complaint.

Norgren said that the day before she was outside walking her dog in the back of her house when she saw a white male walking down the alley behind her house. The male was leaning back and walking with his pelvis pushed out.

Then Norgren said she saw that his pants were below his waist, so low that she was able to see his private parts. Norgren asked the male what he was doing, and why his pants were down, too which, he responded with a blank stare. The suspect then began to pull up his pants and run away between two houses. Norgren said that the suspect was approximately 5 feet away from her during the confrontation.

It should be mentioned that on the north side of the alley there are numerous town homes whose garages exit into the alley. The south of the alley is open to a large field that has no privacy and could be openly viewed by citizens from many angles.

Norgren described the suspect as a white male approximately 15 to 17 years of age with dark brown or black medium length hair.
Norgren talked about the incident with her neighbor who said she believes she knows the suspect. The neighbor then got a picture that had, what appeared to be the suspect, and other Boy Scout members in a group photo.

After viewing the picture, Norgren quickly identified the the person in the picture as the male she'd seen. Norgren pointed the suspect out on her own, without her neighbor's help.

This isn't the first time TPD received a call like this in Southwood. Multiple calls have been made for assistance in regards to a male exposing himself.

On Jan. 16, 2013, a complaint was made that a white male between the ages of 15-17, medium build and shaggy brown hair, tried to pet a residents dog.

On Jan. 29, 2013, a complaint was made that a white male with medium length dark hair was near a children's playground with his pants below his waist.

On Aug. 25, 2013 another similar incident occurred at the intersection of Mulberry Park Boulevard and Grove Park Drive. The suspect stopped a female jogger, told her his arm was injured and that he needed her assistance unzipping his pants.

Based on this incident, as well as prior events, the suspect was charged with indecent exposure.

From TPD's Facebook Page:

For those of you live and visit the Southwood area, I have bad guy for you to keep an eye out for. A young man described as a white male between 15 and 17 years old with medium length wavy hair has been exposing himself in the area. Unfortunately, this is not the first time. Several months ago, officers responded to a few reports of this bad buy doing the same thing. He usually is found near the walking path area and will pretend as if he does not know his genitals are exposed as others approach. I'm not sure how one finds themselves with their genitals accidentally exposed, but I can assure you that more than once is no accident. It was pretty cold yesterday, so I am certain that type of "accident" would be readily apparent. We need your help in identifying this bad guy and stopping his exhibitionist ways. If you see someone suspicious, please call 606-5800 so an officer can respond and introduce themselves!
