Authorities on April 25 charged a 17-year-old boy in connection with a series of exposures in the Sugarland Run area.
Loudoun County deputies were able to locate the teen with help from the community, according to Liz Mills, spokesperson for the Sheriff's Office.
The teen is being held at the Loudoun County Juvenile Detention Center on four counts of indecent exposure, three counts of obscene sexual display and two counts of peeping into a dwelling.
A motive for the incidents has not been identified.
The incidents began on March 31 when a Wedgedale Drive resident answered a knock on their door, but found no one there. A few minutes later, after a second knock, the resident looked out the window and saw a teenager exposing himself.
A similar case was reported on April 11 when a victim reported that on April 8 they were walking in the area of Avondale Drive after 4:30 p.m. and saw a man exposing himself. On April 18 a girl reported she was outside her home around 10:45 p.m. in the 230 block of Greenfield Court when she saw an unknown man exposing himself.
Two more cases were reported in the area on April 20. In one incident, a resident reported they were outside their home in the 740 block of Sugarland Run Drive when they heard a noise coming from outside the fence. When they went to investigate, they saw a man exposing himself. An additional incident was also reported at a home in the 230 block of Greenfield Court that same night.
A resident in the 10 block of Wedgedale Drive on April 22 reported they came home to find an unknown man looking into their window.
Members of the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office Community Resource Unit, the Criminal Investigations Division and Patrol, conducted a pro-active investigation into the cases, according to Mills. During the investigation, a possible suspect was identified by the Community Resource Unit from information provided by the community.
