Gainesville Police Department (GPD) detectives arrested a man allegedly linked to nearly 15 indecent exposure cases this year.
According to a GPD release, detectives utilizing plain clothes and vehicles were tracking John Wesley Mosely, 28, on Tuesday evening after previous research from prior reports. Within an hour of observation, the detail spotted and followed Mosely’s vehicle and the suspect drove throughout Southwest Gainesville in and out of student complexes until he parked and exited his vehicle at Lexington Crossing apartments.
Moseley allegedly lingered near various breezeways by apartment doors before two victims approached their doorway. Mosley then exposed himself and, once he got a reaction, he ran back to his vehicle and fled the scene, according to the release.
A GPD patrol was called in and stopped Mosley’s vehicle and, shortly after, the Lexington Crossing apartment victims identified Mosley for his act, leading to Mosely’s arrest.
GPD charged Mosley with two felony counts of indecent exposure due to a prior misdemeanor conviction of the same charge.
