TEXARKANA, Texas — Police have arrested a man accused of looking in the windows of a nursing home on Elizabeth Street while masturbating.
He is also accused of exposing himself to a woman working in her yard.
Edward Cole, 29, is being held in the Bi-State jail on a charge of indecent exposure, according to the Texarkana Texas Police Department. His bond has not yet been set.
Staff at the nursing home had reported someone looking in the windows on both Friday and Saturday nights but the suspect left before police arrived. However, one employee was able to get a quick video of him leaving on Saturday, according to TTPD.
Cole was arrested Sunday morning after a woman in the nearby Hidden Acres neighborhood called 911 to report that a man walking down the street had just exposed himself and made gestures in front of her as she worked in her yard. Officer Tiffany Harper found a man sitting on some steps at Town North Apartments shortly afterward that matched the description given by the woman. She identified him as Cole and also found he was the suspect in the video recorded by the nursing home employee.
