LATEST: West Palm man has seven indecent exposure arrests since 2015


A 55-year-old West Palm Beach man is being held at the Palm Beach County Jail without bond after he was arrested for indecent exposure for the seventh time since September 2015.

Three of those arrests took place in Palm Beach County this year, including two over three days this week.

Alberto Lage is facing two counts of indecent exposure following his latest arrest, which took place Wednesday night after he allegedly touched himself inappropriately in front of two women in different locations.

The first incident Wednesday took place in the 400 block of Northwood Road outside a business in Northwood Village near 23rd Street, according to an arrest report. An employee told West Palm Beach police that Lage had repeatedly exposed and touched himself in her presence. Surveillance cameras allegedly caught Lage in the act.

A short time later, police responded to Currie Park after a woman said Lage stood 10 yards from her car and exposed himself while “smiling directly at her,” the report said.

Lage was also arrested by West Palm Beach police Monday after he was allegedly seen masturbating on the corner of Butler Street and Broward Avenue, south of the park.

Court records show that Lage had been released from jail March 8 after his arrest Jan. 18 in Delray Beach for indecent exposure and loitering. Witnesses allegedly saw Lage looking through the window of a residence while touching himself, according to an arrest report.

State records show that Lage was also arrested for indecent exposure on Sept. 14, 2015 (Miami Shores), Nov. 5, 2015 (Miami), Jan. 19, 2016 (Miami) and April 14, 2016 (Hollywood). He was sentenced to a year in jail as the result of his arrest in Hollywood.

Lage has served two prison sentences after being convicted of charges including robbery and burglary, according to records.
