Man charged with 4th indecent exposure offense

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A man who faces charges for indecent exposure at a gas station was in court Thursday.

Bobby Vertrees, 51, was identified by a victim in a photo pack.

The victim told police Vertrees exposed his privates to her while she was sitting in her car at a gas station in January.

She said Vertrees was parked next to her, when he walked around to her driver-side window and flashed her while touching himself, according to a warrant for his arrest.

The victim was able to take a picture of the suspect.

This is not the first time Vertrees has faced such charges. He was found guilty of indecent exposure in 2011, 2013 and 2016.

Vertrees is being held on a $1,000 cash bond. Indecent exposure is a felony.

He has requested a public defender.
