VENICE, Fla. - As increased police patrols searched for a serial flasher in the Venice area last week, undercover officers made an arrest on another man they say was exposing himself in a beach park.

76-year-old Albert Hickerson was arrested Friday afternoon at Caspersen Beach when officers say he was sitting at a picnic table and exposing himself.

He is facing one count of Indecent Exposure in Public.

At the time of Hickerson's arrest on Friday, Venice Police were conducting increased patrols in the area for a man some called the Venice Flasher.  Numerous reports throughout the week claimed a man was seen committing lewd acts at several Venice-area locations.  Police arrested William Waldman on Saturday afternoon and charged him with the acts.
