Santa Maria resident Nathan Taylor, 32, was arrested in Orcutt Friday evening for allegedly masturbating in front of a juvenile. Around 6 p.m., authorities responded to a report of indecent exposure on the 3700 block of Orcutt Road; they identified Taylor as the suspect, according to a Sheriff’s Office press release. Taylor was booked into County Jail for indecent exposure.

In February, Taylor was arrested for the same crime at Santa Maria’s YMCA at 3400 Skyway Drive. In October 2015, he was “a person of interest for a similar incident at Orcutt Community Park” located at 5800 South Bradley Road, read the Sheriff’s Office release. Authorities say the case will be sent to the District Attorney’s Office for prosecution.

Authorities believe more people may have had similar encounters with Taylor and ask anyone with information to call the Santa Maria Sheriff’s Substation at (805) 934-6150 or call anonymously to (805) 681-4171.
