Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department deputies arrested a 38-year-old Altadena man after he was identified as the suspect in an indecent exposure at an Altadena home, Sunday.
At 6:50 a.m. Sunday, suspect Dejuan Robertson reportedly entered a 91-year-old woman’s home in the 600 block of Altadena Drive and exposed himself to her, according to a Thursday LASD press release. The victim reportedly convinced the man to leave and she was not harmed.
LASD Lieutenant Eric Lasko told Patch Thursday that the victim did not know Robertson and he gained entry to her home from a back door that was left unlocked.
Robertson was located a few blocks away from the victim’s residence and arrested when she positively identified him.
On Tuesday, Robertson was charged with one felony count of Indecent Exposure after Unlawful Entry, which was filed as a second strike offense.
Robertson’s previous convictions include auto theft, burglary, battery on a police officer and a weapons violation.
His most recent conviction appears to be a felony theft in July 2009, Lasko told Patch.
