PHOENIX (AP) — Authorities have arrested a man for allegedly exposing himself to women joggers in Phoenix since late last year.

Phoenix police say 25-year-old Michael Christopher Atkins is being held on suspicion of four counts of public sexual indecency, two counts of indecent exposure, assault and harassment.

Police say they received several reports of a man exposing himself along the Central Avenue Corridor bridle path since November.

The most recent incidents reportedly occurred on June 21 and June 25.

Police say a vehicle description was obtained, officers located it and detectives were able to link Atkins to the case.

Police say Atkins was arrested at his Phoenix home Wednesday and a search warrant was served to collect evidence.

They didn’t immediately know if Atkins has an attorney yet.
