Man accused of flashing people, including cop, at Topeka park near governor's mansion

Topeka authorities have arrested a man who's accused of flashing people at the state park near the governor's mansion.

Officer Patrick Saleh with the Capitol Police told WIBWNewsNow that officers received reports earlier this month from visitors at the Kaw River State Park of a man flashing people, including children. Capitol Police and Topeka Police then set up a sting operation at the park.

Saleh says the suspect, a 53-year-old man, flashed one of their officers, and was taken into custody Monday. He was booked into the Shawnee County Jail on charges of lewd and lascivious behavior and aggravated indecent liberties with a child.

Formal charges are pending.
