LAFAYETTE, LA (WAFB) -

After a 10 day investigation, a Lafayette man was arrested and charged with six counts of indecent behavior with juveniles.

According to the Lafayette Parish Sheriff, 28-year-old Scott Hawthorne was exposing himself to several neighborhood kids who were walking to a bus stop in a subdivision.

The children reported the incident to school officials. During the investigation, the sheriff's office learned that Hawthorne had been exposing himself to the children and other females since November 2013.

The report from the Sheriff's Office says Hawthorne stood nude in the doorway of his home, stimulating himself while the children walked passed. The victims told officials that he called out to them to get their attention so they would look.

Hawthorne remains in jail in lieu of a $150,000.00 bond.
