Redmond police arrest utility worker for exposing self in baseball dugout

A witness had seen the same suspect the week before with his pants down.

Redmond police recently arrested a utility worker who was seen with his pants down at Grass Lawn Park.

A man was walking his dog in the 700 block of 148th Ave. NE at around noon on March 16 when he saw a man naked from the waist down. The witness reported to police the alleged perpetrator was sitting in a baseball dugout with his pants down to his ankles.

And it wasn’t the first time the witness had seen the suspect.

According to Redmond police, the man said he saw the same worker the week before with his pants down.

“Each time, the suspect pulled his pants up and got into an electrical company truck after he spotted the witness,” Redmond police wrote. “Police were able to identify the man through a supervisor at the company, track him down and arrest him on suspicion of indecent exposure.”

Indecent exposure is a misdemeanor in the state of Washington.

A police spokeswoman said the suspect was booked and released at the station, and a summons will be sent for his first court date.
