Community offers safety tips after man is arrested for public indecency

By  | 

ENTERPRISE, Ala. (WTVY) - Police say a man with a history of exposing himself in public has done it again.

Officers arrested James Russell on Tuesday for public indecency.

The incident happened last Friday in Enterprise in broad daylight and in a place most of us would normally feel safe.. Walmart.

Residents say what happened is an eye opener to the community and something people need to be aware of, as they go about their daily routines.

Lt. Billy Haglund says it is unfortunate that indecency crimes happen so often in the community, and if it does, he says the worst thing to do is to say nothing.

"Nowadays there are surveillance cameras everywhere.. the police can check cameras in the area.. to see if their child reported something like this may have happened. Don't be afraid to call us, it's what we are here for."
