Man charged with indecent exposure near library

South Boston News
Jeremy S. Hargrove / July 10, 2018

A North Carolina man has been arrested for indecent exposure after he allegedly fondled himself in the South Boston Public Library parking lot. South Boston police charged Jeremy Stephan Hargrove on Monday after they were notified of a video posted on Facebook. The video, now taken down, led to the arrest.

Hargrove, a resident of Ruffin, N.C., was witnessed exposing himself at other locations on Broad Street on June 25, nearby the library. One witness described Hargrove in an alley fondling himself before “he jumped back in the bushes.”

Library staff said they were aware of the incident, but had not witnessed it personally. An employee at Roger’s Heating and Air Conditioning was also aware of the situation but, again, had not seen it in person.

The video posted on social media that showed Hargrove engaging in indecent acts was not posted by the alleged perpetrator, but rather by an unnamed person known to the police, according to South Boston Detective Randy Redd.

Hargrove, 29, was charged with two misdemeanor offenses: indecent exposure and obscene sexual display. He was taken to the Halifax jail and released on a $2,500 secure bond.

Hargrove has previously been charged with exposing himself to six women on a North Carolina community college campus in 2015. Those incidents, at Rockingham
Community College, took place between March and April of that year.
