INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) - Metro police have arrested two men for separate flashing incidents on the Monon Trail.

Officers arrested 18-year-old and Paul McDonald and 38-year-old Brandon Whitacre Friday. Both men are facing charges of public nudity. Whitacre is also facing public indecency charges.

Police say McDonald exposed his genitals to women on the trail on two occasions, once on January 9 and again a week later, on the 16th. People on the trail snapped a series of photos of him and turned them over to police.

McDonald turned himself in to police Friday morning.

Meanwhile, investigators believe Whitacre was the man exposing himself to women on the trail February 10th and 11th. Witnesses also took pictures of his action, along with his truck.

Police say those pictures, which were shared on Eyewitness News, social media and through Crime Stoppers, led to the tips they needed to make the arrests.
