Indecent Exposure Arrest

An Illinois man was charged Monday after Storm Lake police were dispatched to the Sail Inn Motel on East Lakeshore Drive to investigate an assault.

Officers were told on Sunday evening a motel employee was called to a guest room to fix a toilet. When the female staff member began to attend to the bathroom fixture the guest… identified as 29-year-old Justin Hatfill of Pekin, Illinois… allegedly exposed himself to the staff person and then rubbed himself on her. The employee fled from the room to avoid further confrontation.

Police located Hatfill Monday evening and charged him with assault with intent to commit sex abuse, an aggravated misdemeanor… and indecent exposure, a serious misdemeanor. He was jailed on a three-thousand dollar bond.
