A man was arrested for sexual battery after he allegedly exposed himself to an employee at the Riverfront Community Center, a police spokesman said.

The incident was reported at 1:30 p.m. Friday.

The suspect, a 19-year-old man, reportedly left the community center after the incident, but police officers located him a short distance away. He was arrested for allegations of sexual battery and lewd and lascivious behavior, Leavenworth Police Chief Pat Kitchens said.

The same suspect was arrested late Thursday night in Leavenworth for alleged lewd and lascivious behavior. But he apparently was released on bond before he was arrested again Friday afternoon, Kitchens said.

The earlier incident was reported at 11:53 p.m. Thursday in the 200 block of Cherokee Street.

When the suspect was arrested Friday afternoon, it was learned that a warrant had been issued for his arrest for an unrelated case. And he also was arrested for this warrant.

The warrant stemmed from a March 12 incident in which a Leavenworth police officer reportedly was pushed down stairs, Kitchens said.

The suspect is charged in this case for alleged battery on a law enforcement officer, according to County Attorney Todd Thompson.
