Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash. - Police arrested a man who they think exposed himself to at least three women.

Police said 21-year-old Jonathan Villegas was arrested Saturday morning.

According to police a woman was jogging Saturday morning and said the suspect walked up to her near Clover Island in Kennewick.  She told police that she had seen news reports about a man exposing himself so she called police.

Police said an hour later he was arrested near Fruitland and Deschutes in Kennewick.

Police said he it did not have a chance to expose himself to the latest victim but he was arrested for stalking her.

Police said this type of crime could escalate into violence.

Kennewick Sergeant Jesse Mill said, "This is normal behavior that you see with people that have progressed into more serious sexual crimes.  It starts out with lewd conduct or exposing themselves.  History shows that."

Police think there might be more victims and want anyone that came in contact with the suspect to contact police.
