Report of flasher leads to arrest at UH-Manoa
A 46-year-old man who allegedly exposed himself to a female student near the University of Hawaii-Manoa campus was charged with fourth-degree sexual assault and trespassing this week.
Vid Mingonis was arrested Monday on campus after he allegedly flashed a woman who attends the university, UH spokesman Jim Manke said.
Mingonis was arraigned Tuesday, and his bail was set at $1,000.
Last week, the university sent out a notice regarding a flasher spotted on campus near the College of Business Administration building.
On Monday, police responded to a report of an incident of a male flasher who exposed himself to a female student near Sea View and University avenues.
At 10:30 a.m. a student told police and campus security that a man had flashed her near the Bilger Building and the art building, UH spokesman Gregg Takayama said. She followed him and reported his location to police and campus security, he said. Police responded quickly and arrested Mingonis on the UH campus mall.
In last week's alert, a partly balding man in his 50s, fitting Mingonis' description, was described as being a flasher, Takayama said. A few months ago, complaints of a flasher with a different description were received, Takayama said.
