(10-19-17) On Tuesday, October 17th, 2017 Celina police took a report of a man exposing himself to an elementary age girl. She was walking in the 900 block of Echo Street walking to a neighbor’s house.  The incident actually took place on October 7th.

The suspect was reported as being a white man possibly in his 50’s, graying or white hair and beard with glasses and wearing a red shirt. He drove a dark red car.  The information was posted on Facebook by the Celina Police Department looking for leads.  That posting lead to a lead being phoned into the Celina P.D. and followed up on by Detective Ron Waltmire and Detective Steve Yoder.

As a result of the investigation an arrest was made today of a Rockford man, 39 year old Chad A. Ralston.  Ralston is currently being held in the Mercer Co. Jail for a $100,000 bond on charges of indecent exposure.

Felony charges are expected to be filed later today.
