COLUMBIA — A man was arrested Monday evening in connection with a sexual misconduct incident reported  Sept. 10.

Anthony Michael Sada, 26, of Brookfield turned himself in to the Columbia Police Department and was arrested on suspicion of felony sexual misconduct involving a child, according to a police department news release. Bond is set at $4,500.

On Sept. 10, two teenage girls were walking home from school in Cosmo-Bethel Park when they saw a man masturbating in a SUV, and they reported that he could have been taking pictures of himself or them, according to previous Missourian reporting. A similar incident and description were reported Aug. 30. Cosmo-Bethel is near the Gentry Middle School.

Police first considered Sada a suspect in the Sept. 10 incident when he was arrested Oct. 21 after exposing himself in a business on the 500 block of E. Nifong Blvd, according to the release. He was arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor sexual misconduct in the second degree for that exposure.

Supervising editor is Stephanie Ebbs.
