Teen held in sexual battery, indecent exposure cases
A 15-year-old Ventura County boy has been arrested on suspicion of indecent exposure and two counts of sexual battery, authorities said Tuesday night.
The youth was arrested at his home after a woman reported that he exposed himself to her on a residential street in Fillmore on April 18, the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department said.
Afterward, detectives allegedly linked the youth to two sexual batteries that were reported in the same area as the indecent exposure incident, according to authorities. The batteries were reported in mid-March.
The youth was being held at juvenile hall.
Police were seeking information on the crimes as well as others who may have been victimized. Anyone with information is asked to call authorities at (805) 524-2233
