PORTLAND -- A 52-year-old man has been arrested for exposing his genitals to a 5-year-old girl on a TriMet bus earlier this month, police said.

The girl's mother said it happened just before 11 a.m. on July 7, near Southwest 6th Avenue and Southwest Columbia Street, according to Portland police Sgt. Pete Simpson.

TriMet dispatchers called police, who did not find the suspect at the scene. They released surveillance photos a few days later.

The photos helped lead police the suspect, Karl Deickmiller. He was arrested at his home and evidence related to the investigation was seized, Simpson said.

Deickmiller was jailed on charges of public indecency, interfering with public transportation, indecent exposure and disorderly conduct.
