A three-week search for a man accused of exposing himself on 10th Street near the Government Center ended Friday with his arrest, Columbus police said.

Dawson Shay, 20, of Columbus was arrested about 9:15 a.m. at the corner of Third Avenue and 11th Street. He was charged with public indecency.

Police said Shay was seen by a woman three weeks ago exposing himself and masterbating in front of a business on 10th Street. The woman called police but the man couldn’t be found after officers arrived.

He had returned to the business on several occasions before he was taken into custody. He was taken to the Muscogee County Jail where he was released on bond.
