VICTORVILLE, Calif. (VVNG.com) — The man arrested after he was filmed masturbating inside his vehicle while talking to a teen boy has been released from jail and according to court records the suspect, Brad Winston Powell, 27, of Victorville was arrested in 2011 on similar charges.

Victor Valley News first broke the story Tuesday morning after a disturbing video surfaced showing an adult male allegedly masturbating in front of a teenager who was walking home from school.

The graphic cell phone footage showed a Black male adult driving a BMW with paper plates through a neighborhood at a slow pace while masturbating. The driver then proceeds to pull alongside the 16-year-old teenager while asking “do you know what time it is?”

The video quickly went viral in the Victor Valley prompting officials to receive tips that led them to the suspect’s vehicle parked at a home in the 13200 block of Brighton Circle in Victorville. The suspect was taken in for questioning and later arrested for felony annoying/molesting a child and indecent exposure.

Brad Winston Powell, 27, was cited and released on April 25, 2018, at 4:28 am, with no scheduled court appearances, according to public court records.

The Victor Valley community is outraged after learning the suspect, Brad Powell was arrested in 2011 when he was accused of exposing himself outside of Morgan Kincaid’s Elementary School Christmas pageant. According to authorities, Powell was located in the area after they were notified he was in his vehicle allegedly exposing himself and arrested him.

Sheriff’s spokeswoman Mara Rodriguez said, the case is sent to the District Attorneys Office and they will determine exactly what charges they will move forward with.
