SWEETWATER, FLA. (WSVN) - A possible peeping predator has been caught and cuffed at Dolphin Mall.
Sweetwater Police have arrested a man they accuse of exposing himself inside the Sweetwater mall. It’s the second such case to happen at the mall in less than two weeks.
“It’s beyond me what people think they can do when they think nobody is looking,” said Sweetwater Police PIO Jonathan Arche.
Sweetwater Police went on perv patrol at the Dolphin Mall and made two arrests in May, with the latest one made earlier this week.
Ruben Dario Carias Castaneda, 42, was arrested Monday after another man reported this…
“Went to use the restroom, and that’s when he noticed the man was peering through the bathroom stalls and exposing himself,” Arche said.
When he yelled for the man to get away, he “winked at him, turned around, and lowered his pants, inserting his hand into his rear area and exposing his buttocks,” according to an arrest report.
“That’s pretty gross. Whatever,” said Judge Mindy Glazer.
And then there’s 28 -year-old Yosbiel Leiva-Arencibia, who police said on May 6, staggered around the men’s room with his genitals exposed in front of a 14-year-old boy, and when the teen tried to ignore him…
“He called him back over to look,” Glazer said.
In both cases, the men were tracked down by police within an hour of the encounter.
“It’s a disgusting act by a disgusting person,” Arche said. “I can tell you right now anyone who thinks he can come into the mall and think they can expose themselves to anybody is sorely mistaken.”
Both men have since bonded out of jail. One of them has been told he is not allowed to return to Dolphin Mall.
