An Alexandria man was arrested for allegedly exposing himself to a fellow passenger and masturbating aboard a Metrobus, Metro Transit Police said.
Dwayne Henry Walker, 48, of Alexandria, was arrested by Metro Transit Police following the incident, the MTPD said in a statement Friday.
Shortly after 4 p.m. Thursday, officers responded to the 7A Metrobus near the intersection of North Beauregard Street and Fillmore Avenue in Alexandria. The victim, an adult female, reported that as the bus approached the 3000 block of North Beauregard Street, she felt the suspect leaning against her. The victim changed her position to avoid contact. The suspect again leaned his body against the victim in an unwanted manner. At that point, the victim looked over and discovered that the suspect was masturbating, the MTPD said.
The victim confronted the suspect and walked to the front of the bus to notify the operator. Alexandria police officers located a man matching the description of the suspect and arrested him.
Walker faces preliminary charges of indecent exposure, assault and battery, and possession of marijuana. He has four prior arrests for indecent exposure since 2015, three of which were by Metro Transit Police.
