MESA, AZ — A twice-convicted sex offender was caught exposing himself outside the window of a Mesa child.

Mesa police report that Wednesday afternoon they arrested 24-year-old Cameron Robert Strempel for exposing and touching himself outside the window of a child's home.

Court documents say that around 1 a.m. on February 15, a preteen girl told her mother that a stranger was outside her window and she saw him touching his genitals.

He was allegedly watching the girl through a crack in the blinds.

Investigators found semen on the window screen and took a sample for analysis.

DNA testing linked the sample to Strempel, a twice-convicted sex offender.

Court records show that Strempel has a history of exposing and touching himself in front of female victims, including children near apartment complexes in Mesa and Chandler.

Strempel was convicted in 2011 and 2013, having served 14 months in prison.

At Strempel's initial court appearance, the victim's mother spoke to the court saying, "what you did to my daughter is irreparable." She also told him, "I pray that whatever is going on in your life, you're free and rid of it."

He is currently being held on a $50,000 bond.
