Middletown police have filed charges against a man they believe has been following females in his car and exposing himself, according to Maj. Scott Reeve.

“He has been looking at females while following them and masturbating,” Reeves said.

He added the department has received several reports in the past couple weeks about a male in a burnt orange Chevy. Today, detectives charged David M. Smith with two counts of misdemeanor public indecency.

Reeve said Smith, 33, has no previous criminal background.

On Jan. 6, a female mail carrier reported a heavyset man in an orange car was sitting in the car masturbating as she delivered mail on Barnitz Street.

In a Jan. 16 report, a parent reported his daughter got off the school bus on Malvern street and a man in a orange vehicle followed her. When the car passed her and began to turn around, the girl said she took off running.

A parent also reported on Jan. 18 that a suspicious man followed her home down Henry Avenue and made her feel uncomfortable, according to the police report.
