County police have arrested and charged a 41-year-old Pasadena man in connection with a series of indecent exposure incidents on the Baltimore-Annapolis Trail.
Officers arrested the man in front of his home about 7 p.m. Wednesday after a 41-year-old Cape St. Claire woman told police she had recognized a man who had exposed himself to her June 11 on the trail between West Pasadena Road and Waterford Road.
The woman recognized the man when she saw him leaning against a tree behind Morrison's Cafeteria in the 8000 block of Ritchie Highway Wednesday night.
She phoned police and told them she saw the man go to a Kellington Drive address.
When Eastern District Officers Eric Snair and Wayne Tanis and Sgt. Terry Crowe went to the man's house, he walked away from them, police said.
When Officer Snair ordered him to stop, the man said he wanted to dispose of a tick he was holding in his hand. But the man threw the tick at the officer, striking him in the chest from a distance of 3 feet, police said.
Dennis H. Hook of the first block of Kellington Drive was charged with indecent exposure and with assaulting a police officer for allegedly throwing the tick at him, police said.
