A naked man sitting in his car outside a library in St. Peters this week asked a teenage girl if she wanted a ride while he fondled himself.
That is according to St. Peters police officials who yesterday arrested Kevin Flatley, 49, two days after he allegedly decided it would be a good idea to sit nude in his car and talk to passersby in the parking lot of a library on Spencer Road.
After an investigation involving surveillance footage at the library and testimony from the victim, police located Flatley at his house and took him into custody, officials say.
Detectives noticed a tattoo of a flag on his arm, which matched the description given by the victim.
The St. Charles County Prosecuting Attorney's Office has issued warrants for sexual misconduct, and the man has been taken to the St. Charles County jail where he is being held on $20,000 bond.
A witness who reportedly observed Flatley talking to the teenage girl at the library Tuesday afternoon called police. And when the girl got home, she called police as well.
Here's the full news release from St. Peters Police Department:
