An east Austin man lands behind bars after police say he exposed himself to a teenage girl.
Harold Gene Freeman, 47, is charged with indecency with a child by exposure, a third degree felony.
According to an arrest affidavit on Saturday night, the 15 year-old female found a man facing into the window of her home on the front porch, exposing himself.
The report goes on to say the victim told the man to get off the porch and when he didn't she reportedly threatened him with a knife, which caused the man to finally leave.
After police were able to track down a man matching the suspect's description, later identified as Harold Freeman, the affidavit states an officer asked Freeman about the incident.
The affidavit says Freeman mentioned going to the home of the teen, but only to offer lawn services.
The officer later brought the teen victim to positively identify Freeman as the suspect and she said that was the person on her porch earlier that evening.
