Anne Arundel COunty Police have arrested a suspect in connection with several indecent exposure cases in the Arnold, Cape St. Claire area.  From a police release this morning:

On November 17, 2010, at approximately 3:04 p.m., officers from the Eastern District responded to the area of Chestnut Tree Drive and Blue Ridge Drive in Cape St. Claire for a reported indecent exposure in progress.

Upon arrival, officers spoke with the 16-year-old female victim, who stated that she was walking home from school when a dark blue small car stopped near her. The victim thought it was a friend and walked over to the car. The victim observed a male sitting in the car with a shirt on and no pants as she approached the vehicle. At that time, the suspect gestured toward his exposed genitalia. The victim walked away from the vehicle and the suspect followed asking her if she wanted a ride. The victim was able to provide police a description of the suspect, the suspect vehicle and a tag number, which she put into her phone.

While officers were interviewing this victim, a second call was dispatched for another indecent exposure incident at Chestnut Tree Drive near Ramblewood Drive. A 15-year-old female victim indicated that she was walking home from school when the aforementioned suspect pulled up to her. The suspect got the victim’s attention, gestured toward his lap toward his lap and the victim noticed that he was not wearing his pants and was exposing himself.

A lookout was given and an officer located the suspect vehicle traveling on Green Holly Drive. The vehicle was subsequently stopped and the driver was detained for questioning. The suspect was positively identified as the person who had exposed himself while sitting in the car.

The suspect was subsequently arrested and transported to Eastern District. Through further investigation, the suspect was also linked to a similar incident that occurred on October 23, 2010 in the same area. In that incident, a 24-year-old female victim was walking in the area and encountered the same suspect. The suspect has been charged with three counts of Indecent Exposure and is currently being held at the Jennifer Road Detention Center on $30,000 bond. A mug shot is not being released at this time pending further investigation.

Suspect: Sherwin Garlitos Cabauatan, 23, of 1533 Winterberry Drive, Annapolis, Md
