MARYSVILLE – A state corrections officer who reportedly exposed himself to a girl last week was arrested Tuesday and booked into the Marysville Jail.
The 25-year-old Marysville man who works at the Monroe Correctional Complex was arrested on suspicion of two counts of Communicating With a Minor For Immoral Purposes and one count of Indecent Exposure.
One girl positively identified the man as the one who had exposed himself Oct. 19 between 2:45 and 3:40 p.m. in a residential neighborhood in east Marysville. The other said he was the one who asked her if she wanted to see his genitals. In both instances he was in the same vehicle.
“These two young ladies should be commended for their quick thinking in both these incidents,” Sgt. Pete Shove said. “Their ability to quickly get to safety while being good witnesses resulted in the rapid resolution of this case.” Officers canvassed the neighborhoods where each incident occurred and were able to locate surveillance footage of the suspect vehicle. A Marysville school resource officer the next day stopped a vehicle matching the description. The vehicle also matched the description given by a woman who reported a similar incident in mid-September, including the same large decal in the back window.
