The man accused of being a serial flasher, faced a judge Thursday morning.
Juan Zamarripa-Gonzalez pled not guilty and the Lorain Muni Court Judge set bond at $5000.
According to Lorain police reports, Zamarripa-Gonzalez has been flashing women and young girls all over town. The latest incident happened Tuesday as a little girl walked home from school on East 32nd St.
The start of the indecent habit appears to be July of last year. He was caught massaging himself in front of a pair of little girls, only 7 and a 4 years old. They live across the street from him.
Then last December, a woman came across him at the intersection of E. 34th St. and Seneca.
"I looked at him to wave him on. I did a double take. He turned sideways and I said...oh no, you are not doing that," said the victim.
By the third report in March of this year, police already had a pretty good idea of who their suspect was going to be when they got a report of the same nature.
"It didn't surprise me. When I was talking to the officer, he said I just arrested this guy two weeks ago," said the victim speaking about Zamarripa-Gonzalez's subsequent arrests.
So far Zamarippa-Gonzalez has only been convicted for one case. That victim is disgusted to hear he was at it again.
"It could have been anybody pulling up to the corner and all I could think about was, my daughter is nine and she could have been in the car," said the victim.
Border Patrol is considering deportation.
Zamarripa-Gonzalez remains out on bond until his next court appearance on December 19.
