Norfolk, Va. – A man has been arrested and charged with indecent exposure after touching himself outside of a woman’s apartment building.

Police received a call in reference to a sex offense on September 20 around 6:30 a.m.

When they arrived, they made contact with Kenneth Jarmell Harris, who they knew from an incident at the same building in June 2014.

Harris claimed he was visiting someone at the apartment.

The victim, a 26-year-old woman from Newport News, told police that she saw Harris in the common area of her building.

A few minutes later, she heard muffled noises through the door.

When she looked through the peep hole, she saw Harris in front of her door masturbating.

Harris was then arrested and charged for indecent exposure, actual or simulated masturbation in public and interfering with the property rights of another.
