An off-duty corrections officer held down a suspect who allegedly exposed himself to at least two women on the Keystone trail.
According to police reports, a woman was running north on the trail when she noticed a man sitting along a tree line near 85th and Blondo last Friday around 4:15 PM.
The report states the woman and another woman who was in-line skating on the trail saw the man sitting with his legs spread open and say he was masturbating.
The suspect tried to run into the woods but didn't get far because he had his pants down around his ankles.
An off-duty corrections officer held the suspect down until police arrived.
Police searched the man and found nearly half a gram of methamphetamine in a small baggie in a pocket of the suspect's jean shorts.
Forty-two-year-old Joseph R. Murphy Jr. was arrested and charged with two counts of Indecent Exposure and Possession of a Controlled Substance (Methamphetamine).
