Police: Sex Offender Arrested for Multiple Acts of Lewd Behavior

A 30-year-old Alexandria man has been arrested on two counts of public indecency and is being held without bond in the city jail.

Harry Ross, who is a convicted sex offender, was arrested at around 4 p.m. on August 22 for allegedly exposing himself and masturbating in public in the area of Quaker Hill Court, according to the Alexandria Police Department.

The incident occurred in a residential neighborhood, which is near Bishop Ireton High School and the Alexandria Commons shopping center.

Police determined Ross was the same suspect who committed the same very act in the area on the previous day, according to police spokesman Lt. Courtney Ballantine.

However, Ross was not charged with an incident that occurred last week near the Giant in the Alexandria Commons Shopping Center. A 15-year-old girl was allegedly approached by the suspect to help her with her bicycle, and he touched her hand, she later told her parents. The girl fled the area and her parents contacted police, but they decided not to press charges.
