Vancouver man arrested after allegedly exposing himself to 16-year-old girl

By , Columbian staff writer

A Vancouver man was arrested Thursday, accused of exposing himself in his car to a 16-year-old girl while she walked home from Fort Vancouver High School last month.

The girl was walking Sept. 23 in the area of North Devine Road and Northeast 18th Street when a man, later identified by police as Nohea O. Greenbaum, 26, parked his car in front of her, according to the Vancouver Police Department.

As she passed Greenbaum, he called to her for help, police said. When she got closer to his car, she saw he had exposed himself. She walked off, and he drove away, a police news release states.

The girl reported it to school officials the next day, and the school issued a message to parents warning them of the incident. Vancouver police said they were not called.

The police department received multiple tips about the incident, and police located the described vehicle in an apartment complex parking lot Sept. 30, according to the news release.

On Tuesday, the girl and her family decided to file a police report. The girl identified Greenbaum from a photo laydown Wednesday, police said.

The Clark County Sheriff’s Office arrested Greenbaum on Thursday for alleged indecent exposure in its jurisdiction. He was booked into the Clark County Jail on suspicion of indecent exposure and multiple warrants. Vancouver police said more charges are pending.

Anyone with information about additional incidents potentially involving Greenbaum should report them to the law enforcement agency in the jurisdiction where they occurred.
