Mall Flasher Suspect Arrested
FARMINGTON, Conn. (AP) _ A Windsor man has been arrested on charges he exposed himself to at least two children inside the Westfarms Mall in Farmington.
Police say they arrested 50-year-old Alan Stuart Hickey Tuesday night at the Mohegan Sun Casino after using his cell phone to track him.
Police say they received tips from the public after releasing security video of their suspect inside the Go Calendar store at the mall. Authorities say that video, taken Monday, shows Hickey exposing himself to a 6-year-old girl and forcing her to touch his genitals.
Police say Hickey had been alerted by a friend that he was wanted by police and had cut his hair and shaved his beard in an apparent attempt to conceal his identity.
Hickey was scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday.
