INDUSTRY (CBS) — A 22-year-old Valinda man was arrested for allegedly exposing himself to school-aged children, sheriff’s officials said Friday.
Jesse Martin Aragon was arrested around 8:45 a.m. Thursday in connection with several indecent exposure and sexual battery cases dating back to January, according to officials at the Sheriff’s Headquarters Bureau.
Authorities accused him of exposing himself to school-aged children and adults. Aragon was usually seen inside a white sport utility vehicle with his penis exposed and masturbating as he drove alongside victims, officials said.
All the victims were able to identify the suspect during follow up investigations, sheriff’s deputies said.
The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office filed six misdemeanor counts of indecent exposure and one misdemeanor count of sexual battery against Aragon, officials said.
Authorities urged any additional victims to contact Detective Brendan Caslin or Lt. John McBride at (626) 330-3322.
