COLUMBIA — The MU Police Department has made an arrest after two women reported separate incidents of a man exposing himself on Wednesday, according to a Clery release.

The police arrested Scott Thoreson, 19, on three counts of second-degree sexual misconduct Friday in connection with the two reports, according to the release.

Thursday afternoon, the police department reported that a man in a red car exposed himself to two women in separate incidents on Wednesday evening, according to previous Missourian reporting.

The report on Friday said information from the community aided in the investigation that led to this arrest.

Supervising editor is Emilie Stigliani.
