NORMAN — A man arrested on an indecent exposure complaint Sunday and released on bail Monday is believed to be the same man who exposed himself to children at bus stops in Norman last week.
Assistant District Attorney Jennifer Austin said she will file new indecent exposure charges against James Wade Walkup, 28, of Norman, by Friday.
Police are looking for Walkup, who posted a $2,000 bail Monday morning on felony counts of indecent exposure and obstructing a police officer.
Walkup's bail was increased to $25,000 Wednesday after Austin learned he was a suspect in new complaints.
Walkup was taken into custody Sunday near Tahoe Drive where two girls said a man exposed himself.
Tahoe Drive is in the same eastside neighborhood where children at a bus stop earlier in the week reported a man exposing himself. Police didn't learn of the bus stop incidents until Monday.
Walkup has a conviction in Oklahoma County on indecent exposure stemming from an incident in 2010.
He pleaded no contest and received a one-year suspended sentence.
Children who reported the bus stop incidents said the man drove a newer model, red Chevrolet truck that said “Jim's Mobile Auto” on the side.
Austin said the two girls on Sunday described what the man was wearing, and Walkup was arrested on foot a few blocks away in clothes that matched that description.
Four children are the victims of exposures at a bus stop near Ronald Reagan Elementary School, she said.
