Boulder police recently arrested a teenage boy on suspicion of looking into a home while masturbating as well as exposing himself to women.

About 10 p.m. on Dec. 9, officers were called to the 1500 block of MacArthur Drive following a report of a man looking into a home while masturbating. A 16-year-old male ran away but was found by officers hiding nearby under a car, according to a news release from the Boulder Police Department.

He was initially charged with two counts of indecent exposure and obstructing a peace officer, both misdemeanors, the release said. After additional investigation, he was later charged with five additional misdemeanor counts of indecent exposure for similar incidents in the same area dating back to March.
