The incident happened around 6:00 last night. Police say Arlington resident Jose Sanchez, 56, was seen masturbating behind a shopping center on the 4800 block of Columbia Pike, while watching children at a nearby playground.

Sanchez was apprehended by Arlington County Police and charged with indecent exposure. Detectives are now trying to determine whether Sanchez could be linked with other, similar cases.

“Our Special Victims Unit will be reviewing similar cases from the past to see if this individual is related to any of those,” police spokesman Dustin Sternbeck told ARLnow.com.
