Nude Winter Haven man arrested

Winter Haven, Florida -- Winter Haven Police say they've arrested a 62-year-old man after he was seen naked, and committing lewd acts in public on two separate occasions.

Police say Willie James Washington was first spotted on Thursday, May 15 around 9 p.m., fully nude inside of a fenced front entryway of a nursing home on Lake Martha Dr., NE staring into windows and inappropriately touching himself. Officers were alerted of the situation the day after, but were not able to find him.

Then, on Wednesday, May 28 around 7 a.m., Washington was seen again by a pedestrian, completely naked and fondling himself near the Chain of Lakes Trail. He was later arrested that day and charged with two counts of Indecent Exposure, two counts of Intimidation/Wearing Mask to Conceal Identity, Burglary and Violation of Probation.

Because of the similarities in the two incidents, detectives went back to the video from the nursing home and ultimately were able to identify Washington as the suspect. Washington was charged with both incidents and booked into the Polk County Jail.

Washington is a multiple-state offender and has an extensive violent criminal history, some of which includes impersonation of an officer, kidnapping, terroristic threats and much more.
