An Oklahoma man was arrested after several children reported seeing him walk to his mailbox naked.

Responding to reports, Oklahoma City police caught Hillard Stallings, 68, masturbating outside his home as a 14-year-old boy walked by around 2 p.m. Wednesday.

A neighbor told police that she and her three children saw Stallings walking around naked in his front yard.

When police approached Stallings he was uncooperative. He told police he is a registered sex offender but refused to hand over his identification. He then locked himself in his home.

An officer stayed at the scene, suspecting that the lewd behavior would continue.

“Our officers who were on this call happened to realize it was getting close to the time that school was letting out, obviously we're concerned for kids that could possibly have been walking past the house,” Sgt. Jennifer Wardlow of the Oklahoma City Police Department told KOCO.

Five minutes later, the officer saw Stallings outside his house "shaking his penis and thrusting his hips out" towards a 14-year-old boy who walked by the house, according to the report.

He was arrested and charged with one count of failure to register as a sex offender, three counts of indecent exposure, and one count of disorderly conduct by masturbating in public.
