CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

A Charleston man was arrested Wednesday afternoon after police say he exposed himself to a juvenile in October.

According to a Charleston Police Department incident report, the alleged flashing occurred on Oct. 11 at a home on Hanover Street.

The report states the juvenile's mother had just received news her mother had a stroke and was in the hospital, so she dropped off her two daughters at the home to be watched by a neighborhood friend.

When she returned to the home to pick them up, the report states, "the children ran out of the residence crying hysterically."

One of the daughters said she was in the living room with her sister when a resident of the home, 58-year-old Robert Bernard Bailey, began making inappropriate comments to her. The daughter said Bailey told her several times he had feelings toward her, and he eventually "unzipped his pants and revealed his genitals to her," according to the report.

The other daughter also said she heard Bailey making inappropriate comments towards her sister, the report states.

When police questioned Bailey and his wife, who was at home at the time, Bailey said he made no inappropriate comments and did not expose himself. Police noted Bailey was drunk at the time.

Bailey's wife told officers she was in the kitchen during the alleged incident and did not see anything.

Following a follow-up interview at the Lowcountry Children's Center with the victmi and a subsequent investigation, Bailey was arrested Wednesday and charged with two counts of disseminating obscene material harmful to minors.

As of Thursday, he was still being held in the Charleston County Detention Center.
