Ventura police say they've arrested a young man in connection with an indecent exposure incident outside the Pacific View Mall.
They say that Thursday around 1 PM officers were called to an area near the JC Penney's in the 300 block of Mills Road to a report of a young man engaged in lewd acts.
During their investigation, police learned that the victim was sitting on a bench outside of the store when the suspect approached her and asked what time it was.
The victim told police the suspect then sat down next to her and after several minutes he got up...but his pants were down.
The victim quickly left and called police to report what happened.
Officers checked the area and found 19-year-old Tyler White sitting near the bus depot at the north end of the mall.
Police say the victim identified him as the suspect and White was arrested for misdemeanor indecent exposure.
According to court records, White was convicted of the same crime in 2014 and received 30 days in jail and three years probation.
Police say that over the past two weeks, there have been similar type incidents reported to the Ventura Police Department, but White could not be identified.
The department is asking the public, if they recognize White (see attached photo) and were possibly a victim of indecent exposure by White, to please call the Ventura Police Department at 339-4441.
According to jail records, White was arrested and jailed Monday for an unspecified crime and then released Wednesday, a day before the mall incident.
According to court records, in addition to the 2014 indecent exposure conviction, White also had separate misdemeanor convictions for public drunkenness and taking a weapon on a school campus.
