An Ashburn man suspected of several indecent exposure incidents was arrested Wednesday and granted bond release on Thursday.
According to the Sheriff’s Office, Jerson Montoya-Mendoza, 24, on Tuesday pulled up in his vehicle next to two adult females who were walking in the area of Ashburn Village Boulevard and Pavilion Parkway.
