Teen arrested for indecent acts

Teen arrested for indecent acts Police have arrested a 14-year-old and charged him with two indecent acts, one from yesterday and one from back in March. 

Police have arrested a 14-year-old and charged him with two indecent acts, one from yesterday and one from back in March.

Just before 1 p.m. on Thursday police were called to the area of Fifth Avenue and Hawkins Street.

A 33-year-old woman had been followed to her parked vehicle. After she got in, the suspect approached the driver’s side window and started to masturbate, police say.

He later ran away. Police in the area arrested him near the clay cliffs after a foot chase.

Because of his age, the boy cannot be named. He is scheduled to appear in court today and is facing two counts of committing an indecent act, and one count of obstructing a police officer.

The second charge of indecent act is related to an incident on the Millennium Trail on March 18.

That evening, a woman was walking her dog when someone started following her.

After entering the part of the trail that is treed, the woman turned and noticed the suspect masturbating. He continued to walk after her, pulling down his pants and whistling, police say.
