Paris man accused of indecent exposure arrested after fleeing to nearby residence

Paris police suburbanParis police officers got a workout about noon Tuesday when they went to a residence in the 300 block of Northeast 25th Street to arrest a 32-year-old man wanted on a warrant for indecent exposure, police department spokesman Curtis Garrett said.

Officers went to the door of Glenn Edward Rundles, who had been reported exposing himself inside a store in the 3500 block of Lamar Avenue. They had seen him enter his residence, and when they attempted to make contact, they heard someone rummaging around inside, Garrett said.

A few minutes later, a neighbor reported hearing someone crawling around inside the attic of her home. A short time later, Rundles was observed exiting from the back door of the neighboring apartment.

Garrett said it was discovered that Rundles had entered the neighboring apartment through the ceiling and had destroyed some clothing to help hide his identity before leaving the apartment.

Officers took him into custody and charged not only with indecent exposure from the prior offense but with burglary of a habitation, evading arrest, and criminal mischief.

In another case, B.J. Ramsey, 28, of Paris was arrested Tuesday on two warrants for family violence assault stemming from a report that he assaulted his common-law-wife on Nov. 30 and again on Dec. 6.

Garrett said Ramsey was located at his residence and taken into custody without incident.

Paris Police responded on Tuesday to 93 calls for service, resulting in the arrests of 11 individuals.
