OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) -- A 27-year-old man was sentenced to jail time for indecent exposure and lewd conduct for an incident in southwest Omaha in October.

An Omaha woman woke up in the early morning hours of October 4, 2017 to a strange noise at her apartment door. Kate told 6 On Your Side when she went to investigate she found a stranger standing at her patio door. He was pleasuring himself.

That man was later identified as John Rawson. He was sentenced to 180 days, consecutive for lewd conduct and 90 days, consecutive for indecent exposure for the incident.

Kate confronted the man and recorded what happened.

"You are really scary and I have a child inside," Kate can be heard telling the man in the video.

"I just want you to watch," the man responded.

"Can you please go away," she said.

"Can you just watch for a second," the suspect said.

Kate said any safety concerns were overcome by fear her word on what happened wouldn't be enough. She told 6 News she gave the video to police.
