A 28-year-old Sarasota man has been charged with exposing himself to women in the Pinecraft area of Sarasota over the past two months, the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office said Thursday.
Several women had reported that a man had exposed his genitals as they walked or rode their bicycles in the community. Some of the women were able to report the man’s license plate, which led deputies to arrest Stephon Cordera Parker.
“Deputies conducted surveillance on Parker Wednesday as he circled the area and eventually conducted a traffic stop,” the sheriff’s office said in a news release.
“When questioned, Parker admitted his actions,” the release states.
Parker is charged with one count each of indecent exposure and loitering or prowling. Additional charges are pending.
Sarasota police have also charged him with indecent exposure in a separate case, the sheriff’s office said.
Parker was released from jail after posting bonds totaling $20,120, according to the sheriff’s office.
