A Lawson resident who police think is the man they dubbed the “South Columbia Flasher” was arrested Tuesday in Richmond by Ray County sheriff’s deputies.
Richard Paul Cain, 47, was arrested when he showed up in court on unrelated burglary and sexual-misconduct charges.
Cain was released on $50,000 bond Tuesday afternoon after Boone County prosecutors charged him with three counts of second-degree sexual misconduct and one count of disturbing the peace.
Sgt. Stephen Monticelli said the suspect exposed himself to victims 10 times between September 2004 and February 2005.
The incidents occurred on Santiago and Southampton drives; Granada, Nifong and Forum boulevards; Diego Court; West Green Meadows Road; and in Cosmo-Bethel Park, Monticelli said.
“He would peer into windows at night and expose himself to joggers during the daytime,” he said.
