Alexandria man arrested for indecent exposure for 5th time since 2015, police say

An Alexandria man has been arrested for indecent exposure for the fifth time since 2015 after he was caught masturbating on a Metro bus Thursday afternoon, according to authorities.

Metro Transit Police said 48-year-old Dwayne Henry Walker boarded a bus at the Pentagon Transit Center and sat down next to a woman at about 4 p.m.

As the bus approached the 3000 block of North Beauregard Street in Alexandria, the victim said she felt Walker leaning against her.

After trying to shift her body to avoid contact with Walker, the victim said he leaned his body against her.

That's when authorities said the woman realized Walker was masturbating and walked away to tell the bus driver.

Walker was taken into custody near the intersection of North Beauregard Street and Fillmore Avenue and charged with indecent exposure, assault and battery, and possession of marijuana.

Officials said Walker had been arrested four times for indecent exposure since 2015 prior to his arrest on Thursday.
