A 32-year-old man suspected of exposing himself on the Cal State Northridge campus earlier this week was arrested today after he exposed himself to three university employees while off campus, authorities said.

The first incident happened on Wednesday and generated a crime alert, according to CSUN police.

Two university employees contacted campus police shortly after 1 p.m. today to report that the suspect, whom they recognized from the crime bulletin, had exposed himself to them while off campus, police said.

They gave police a description of the suspect and reported his direction of travel, which was toward the campus, police said.

"Minutes later, university police dispatch received a call from a third victim, another CSUN employee, reporting a similar incident that took place near the Valley Performing Arts Center. The victim reported to police that the suspect was traveling by bicycle toward the CSUN Orange Grove," according to a police statement.

Campus police officers located the suspect, identified as Jason Andrew Oakland, soon after. He was positively identified by the victims and arrested, police said.

Oakland was taken to the Los Angeles Police Department's Van Nuys Station and was due to be arraigned on Monday, police said.
