Livingston Parish deputies have arrested 47 year old Robert Armstrong after he allegedly flashed female victims at a park in Denham Springs.
Several women complained that 47-year-old robert armstrong was touching himself inappropriately, while he watched them exercise in north park.
Authorities say an under cover deputy caught Armstrong in action, but the alleged flasher was able to run away.
Authorities say Armstrong was pulled over a few weeks later for a traffic violation, in what investigators found out was a stolen car. They say the undercover cop was able to identify him as the suspect he chased in the park.
Armstrong was booked into the Livingston Parish Jail on one count of obscenity—a crime that he has been charged with before.
Authorities tell us Armstrong has been arrested at least five times for obscenity, molestation, and sex with juveniles, but he has never been required to register as a sex offender.
Flashing an adult victim is the only crime Armstrong has been convicted of, and Louisiana law doesn't require that he register in the sex offender data base.
