INDIAN RIVER COUNTY — A local man was arrested Thursday after a mail carrier said he exposed himself to her as she delivered mail Oct. 28, according to the Sheriff’s Office.
Thomas Patrick Spencer, 19, of the 1900 block of First Place Southwest, was charged with exposure of sexual organs and attaching an improper tag to a vehicle, both misdemeanors.
Spencer, driving a black pickup, followed the postal worker along her mail delivery route before stopping on the 700 block of 12th Street and exposing himself to her, according to an arrest warrant.
“Once the vehicle was next to her it stopped, and she observed through an open driver-door window that the driver was masturbating,” the warrant affidavit said.
The mail carrier, who had seen Spencer’s license plate, called 911 and reported the incident, the affidavit said.
The plate had ties to Spencer’s address, where a deputy later spoke with him, according to the affidavit.
