Suspected Flasher Told Police Once He Started, He Couldn’t Stop
BOULDER, Colo. (CBS4)- A man suspected in a series of flashings told police once he started, he couldn’t stop.
Alexander Davison was arrested Saturday near Broadway and Mountain Laurel in Boulder. Neighbors said it’s a quiet community, but very busy.
“There is a lot of outdoor activity, anywhere in Boulder, really, you have a lot of people around all the time,” said one woman.
Two women called police saying a man exposed himself to them on a bike path.
Over the weekend, a number of undercover officers, including a female officer posing as a jogger, hit bike paths in the city.
One of the officers spotted Davison, 20, entering his home.
“He did not expose himself to the officer, but he told us that he had intended to,” said Boulder Police spokeswoman Kim Kobel.
When Davison left his home, he was arrested a short distance away at a bus stop. Although Davison was only suspected in two cases, but he admitted to more.
“When they approached him, he admitted that he knew why they wanted to talk to him and he admitted that he had exposed himself to 60 or 70 other women,”s aid Kobel.
According to the police report, Davison told investigators that he took an interest in public nudity over the summer and once he began flashing women, he couldn’t stop. He told police he knew an arrest would make him stop.
“He admitted that he has a problem and we’re happy to get him off the streets,” said Kobel.
Police are asking more victims to come forward.
Currently Davison is charged with just two counts of indecent exposure for the women who have come forward, but that could be increased based on how many more victims identify themselves to police.
Davison was released on $2,000 bond on Monday. Click here to see the entire police report.
