Indecent Exposure Charges Filed After Man Caught In Act

OCEAN CITY — A local man has been charged with multiple counts of indecent exposure after several reported incidents in north Ocean City over the last few weeks.
Around 11:45 p.m. on Monday, Ocean City Police responded to the area of Jamestown Rd. for a reported indecent exposure case involving a male exposing himself in a vehicle. According to a police source, the most delicate way to describe the suspect’s actions would be that he was pleasuring himself.
OCPD officers had responded to the area on previous occasions for similar complaints, but in each of those cases, the suspect had left the area before police arrived.
On Monday, however, OCPD officers arrived in the area and located the suspect, later identified as Erik T. Rosado, 28, of Ocean City, who was still seated in his vehicle. Investigators determined Rosado was allegedly the person who had been seen by victims in his vehicle and exposing himself to passersby.
Ocean City Police located two victims who positively identified Rosado as the suspect who had exposed himself on at least three previous occasions over the past two weeks.
After being interviewed by detectives, Rosado was charged with four counts of indecent exposure. As of late Wednesday, Rosado was in custody at the Ocean City Public Safety Building awaiting an initial appearance before a District Court Commissioner.
The OCPD is urging anyone who may have the victim of a similar incident in the Jamestown Rd. area to contact the Criminal Investigation Division and Detective Nick Simpson at 410-520-5349.
