BALDWIN PARK, Fla. - Authorities have arrested a man accused of exposing himself to a woman Sunday in a Baldwin Park neighborhood before he allegedly grabbed her, Orlando police said.

Police said Harry Lee Goldsboro was arrested Thursday, days after neighbors reported the incident on the app Nextdoor.

The victim said she was walking her dog near Meeting Place and Broad Street when Goldsboro grabbed her shoulder as he was masturbating. The posting says she fought him off and screamed until he ran. 

Neighbors said they were able to get a glimpse of the suspect before he got away, which helped authorities in their search to make an arrest.

Police also asked the community to provide any information they may have had using the anonymous Crimeline number.

Goldsboro was taken into custody Thursday and charged with attempted sexual battery and exposure of sexual organs, police said.

Authorities said Goldsboro is believed to be involved in other recently reported cases.

Nearby in Winter Park, a woman said she was walking her dog down the street on March 18 when a black Nissan Altima pulled up beside her and blocked her path. A man got out of the vehicle, exposed himself and started to masturbate, police said. The woman then yelled for help and the man fled the scene in his vehicle, a police report said. 

In February, detectives said a woman was walking to her car in the Orlando International Airport parking garage when a man drove past her in a black Nissan Altima.

The woman said she was concerned for her safety, so she quickly walked to her vehicle then got in and locked the door. When she looked up, she saw the man detectives believe to be Goldsboro exposing himself and masturbating, the report said. The woman sped off and called police.
