Indecent Exposure Suspect on the Loose, May be Repeat Offender

Two indecent exposure incidents were reported in Arlington over the weekend, and one of the subjects may be a repeat offender.

One incident happened around 3:50 p.m. on Saturday, June 2, on the 2700 block of S. Lang Street in the Long Branch Creek neighborhood, where spectators had gathered to watch a soccer game. One of the attendees was an intoxicated male, who allegedly made inappropriate comments to a female victim in the presence of her daughter. The woman says the man proceeded to urinate with his back to her, then turned around to expose himself to her and her daughter.

The woman called police and they were able to locate 45-year-old Saul Aparicio, of no fixed address, in the vicinity. He was arrested and charged with indecent exposure and being drunk in public. It appears he targeted the woman and her daughter, and didn’t expose himself to others at the soccer game.

The second incident happened last month, around 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, May 30, but was reported to police several days later. A man sitting on a restaurant patio in the 3200 block of Wilson Blvd in Clarendon allegedly exposed himself to a woman sitting at a nearby table. The woman says the man had been staring at her and tried to get her attention several times. The man, who was reportedly wearing very short shorts, then exposed himself to her underneath the table. When the woman alerted her friends and they turned around, the suspect left the scene.

The suspect is described as a white male in his mid-sixties, with shoulder length white hair. At the time, he was wearing black shorts, a green polo shirt and sandals. It’s believed this may be the same suspect who was caught masturbating while watching children on a nearby restaurant patio last month.

“He does meet the description of a previous suspect,” said Arlington County police spokesman Dustin Sternbeck. “It’s not 100 percent certain it’s the same individual, but the descriptions are very similar.”

Sternbeck says the woman did the right thing by contacting police, but the delay of several days has made it difficult to track down the suspect.

“If you are a victim or witness something of this nature, please contact police immediately,” Sternbeck said. “The chances of us locating this individual days later significantly decreases.”

Anyone who encounters this man, or any other person, performing an indecent act in public should call police, but not try to confront the person. It’s unknown if he may try to inflict harm.
