Asbury Park, NJ man arrested for exposing himself at Joe Palaia Park in Ocean Township, NJ
Ocean Township Police have announced the arrest of an Asbury Park man who is accused of exposing himself to a woman walking through Joe Palaia Park last week.
Through their on-scene investigation on July 21, around 6:29 pm, police learned from the female victim that the man exposed himself as she was walking on a path in the park.
When police placed him under arrest, the man was identified as 33-year-old Sergio Lopez-Sanchez of Asbury Park who was then charged with Lewdness and Harassment.
Police also learned that Sergio Lopez-Sanchez operates a white Ford work van.
Following his arrest and processing at police headquarters, Sergio Lopez-Sanchez was released on a criminal summons, police said, pending a future court appearance.
However, Ocean Township Police believe this was not an isolated incident but that Sergio Lopez-Sanchez may have been involved in other similar incidents of indecent exposure on his behalf.
