Suspect arrested for indecent publicity and indecent acts at Lengthy Seashore – The Sign Tribune
The suspect is linked to at least five incidents in which he has exposed himself.
A male adult suspect allegedly involved in a number of incidents of indecent exposure and indecent behavior involving minors was arrested by detectives on Wednesday, August 19, according to a press release from the Moncton Police Department.
According to the press release, the suspect was identified as a 34-year-old David Leon Lopez from Moncton.
The description of the suspect is as follows:
eyes: Brown and wearing glasses
facial hair: Moustache
Detectives began the investigation after a social media post was reported on May 10, 2020 about an exposure incident.
“Through follow-up examinations, victim evidence and information obtained from social media post detectives, the suspect’s vehicle has been linked to six other incidents in the city of Moncton,” the press release said.
According to the press release, this is a summary of the incidents the suspect is linked to:
– On October 1, 2019, officers were sent to the Wardlow Road and Golden Avenue area to obtain a report on an adult male sitting in his car while masturbating. The vehicle had disappeared when the officers arrived.
– On the same day, October 1, 2019, a 17-year-old and a 21-year-old female victim walking in the Harding Street and Atlantic Avenue area reported a suspect in his vehicle who masturbated and followed them. The vehicle was not found by officers that day.
– On May 25, 2020, officers were sent to the Spring Street and Studebaker Road area because a suspect masturbated in his vehicle. The victim, an adult woman, said she was outside her home when the suspect pulled up.
On July 9, 2020, we received a report from a suspect who exposed himself in a vehicle while following a 15-year-old woman around Atherton Street and Palo Verde Avenue.
– On August 2, 2020, an adult woman walking in the area of Palo Verde Avenue and Spring Street reported being followed by a suspect who matched the description of the previous incidents.
The press release states that detectives believe Lopez has been driving in and around Moncton since October last year, and it is believed that there are more victims who can provide additional details.
The suspect is believed to have driven a silver 2018 Ford Mustang with California license plate number 8GFE158.
Lopez is being held in Moncton City Jail on bail of $ 75,000 and booked for a number of indecent acts and eight indecent exposure cases.
