HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. -- Huntersville police arrested a man accused of exposing himself to two girls last Saturday.
Police charged 25-year-old Hugh Thomas Ragland with two counts of felony indecent exposure and two counts of indecent liberties with a child.
Police said they received a report of an adult male jogger exposing himself to two juvenile girls.
The juveniles were playing in a common area near the intersection of Spruell Street and Holly Springs Drive when they observed a white male jogging down Spruell Street towards them.
As the suspect approached the juveniles he exposed his genitals to them as he ran past. The suspect proceeded to make additional loops around the common area while reaching his hand into his pants as he passed the girls.
The suspect then continued jogging down Spruell Street away from the victims.
After officers received the suspect description, he was identified by a detective with the Huntersville Police Department who was jogging in the area during the same time of the incident.
The detective recalled passing a known, white male fitting the suspect’s description during his run.
On Thursday, Ragland met with officers at the Huntersville Police Department at which time he confessed to the juveniles’ allegations.
