Man faces indecent exposure charges for incident at Oneka Elementary

The 27-year-old Maplewood man reportedly exposed himself in a vehicle in the school's parking lot.

A 27-year-old Maplewood man is facing indecent exposure charges after exposing himself in a vehicle near Oneka Elementary in Hugo last week.

The Washington County Sheriff’s Office received a complaint of indecent exposure on Sep. 25. The suspect reportedly asked an adult female to approach the vehicle in the school’s parking lot, where he was exposing himself.

The woman reported the incident to a school employee, who was able to record the license plate number on the vehicle and take a picture before the suspect left.

The Sheriff's Office searched the area and located the suspect and the vehicle in a parking lot elsewhere in the city.

Officials concluded there was enough evidence to charge the man with indecent exposure.
