ORIGINAL STORY (Jan. 9, 2018 at 5 p.m.)
A man accused of exposing himself to a teenage girl in the lobby of the library on Golf Club Road has been arrested.
Scott Edward Taylor, 37, was arrested Monday on charges including engaging in sexual activity with the intent to have a minor view, indecent exposure, and simple possession of marijuana, according to Knoxville Police.
KPD said they responded to the Bearden Branch Library on Dec. 12 at around 4:41 p.m. and the victim told them she was in the lobby of the library when Taylor approached her and attempted to touch her. The teen went to the women's restroom to get away from him and she told investigators that when she left, he exposed himself to her.
The victim immediately called 911 after that, KPD said.
Taylor is being held in the Roger D. Wilson Detention Facility on a $13,300 bond.
It's not the first time Taylor has been accused of exposing himself in public.
In 2014, Taylor was allegedly in the Disney Store in the West Town Mall when he reportedly exposed himself.
WBIR reported in 2014 that a Knoxville Police release stated that he tried to run away when an officer tried to place handcuffs on him. The suspect and the officer then fell to the ground, and Taylor allegedly kicked the officer in the face and ran out of the mall.
In that release, officials said they were able to arrest Taylor on Kingston Pike shortly after the incident. He was then charged with one count of assault, evading and resisting arrest. At the time, authorities already had a warrant on file for his arrest for failure to obey court orders.
If anyone has had similar contact with this suspect, they are asked to contact the Knoxville Police Department at 865-215-7212.
