MANATEE -- A 28-year-old suspect accused of exposing himself to a 67-year Manatee County woman was arrested at 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, according to the Manatee County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies found James Turner in a home in the 7500 block of 43rd Street Court East but he would not come to the door or answer calls, according to the report.

Turner was charged with domestic battery on a victim 65 years or older, exposure of sexual organs, tampering with communication and resisting arrest.
