mugslewd.jpgA man was arrested for allegedly photographing a woman who disrobed herself to passing bike riders along a Davis greenbelt. The female flasher was also arrested.

The man, Nicholas Bowen, 61, (pictured right) of Grizzly Flats, El Dorado County, was seen either taking video or photographs of Wenyi Xu, 30, (pictured left) of Folsom, about 9:30 a.m. Wednesday, according to Davis police.

Police said that a worker in the municipal greenbelt near the Covell bike overcrossing on the north side of Community Park saw a woman exposing herself to two passing juveniles on bikes.

While the woman disrobed in front of the young people, a man recorded it with a camera. One of the youths was so taken aback by the sight of the nude woman that he fell off his bike.

Police responded and arrested Xu on suspicion of indecent exposure, annoying a child and engaging in lewd acts in public. Bowen was arrested on suspicion of assisting in indecent exposure, annoying a child and lewd acts in public.
