Police arrested a 28-year-old man suspected of exposing himself and indecently assaulting a woman as she walked along South Church Street after she filmed her assailant on her cellphone camera. The video was circulated on social media.

The woman told police she had been approached by the man, whom she did not know, as she walked along the road Monday morning. The man made advances to her and began following her, refusing to leave her alone and eventually making unwanted physical contact, police said.

“The male then indecently exposed himself to her, and continued to follow her. She yelled to the male to leave her alone, knocked on the doors of a nearby apartment complex for assistance, and filmed his actions with a cellphone camera.

“Eventually the male left the area. The video of the male was subsequently circulated on social media,” police said in a statement.

Officers arrested the man, of George Town, Monday night. He remained in police custody Tuesday.
