Police said John Benton exposed himself Monday in the parking lot of the Lowes Foods on Millbrook Road at Capital Boulevard. Two women said they saw Benton sitting in a van exposing himself.
When officers arrived, however, they couldn't locate the distinctive van described by the victims.
On Tuesday, police managed to arrest Benton.
A north Raleigh woman, who said she was one of the victims who witnessed the flashing on Monday, talked to ABC11.
"I think that they have a serious problem," said Veronica Smith. "There is something definitely wrong with an individual that is sitting in a parking lot, broad daylight where there's not a lot of cars, committing an act like that."
Benton has been arrested before for indecent exposure. He's also been convicted of child abuse. Because of that, a judge raised his bond from $1,000 to $5,000 Wednesday.
