A man was arrested in Lincoln on Saturday after what police say was a series of indecent exposure incidents.

Joseph Shelton, 20, was arrested after he drove up to a woman and started asking her questions at around 6:30 p.m. Saturday night, according to a release from the Lincoln Police Department. As the woman answered his questions, she told police that his genitals were exposed.

After the woman reported the incident, the department received two additional calls reporting similar incidents, according to the release. One caller said Shelton was masturbating in his vehicle.

Officers located Shelton’s vehicle a short time later and he was arrested and taken to South Placer Jail, the release said.

Jail records indicate Shelton is being held on three counts of indecent exposure. His bail is set at $60,000.
