A Cottonwood man has been arrested, accused of exposing himself to several young girls exiting a school bus last week.

The Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office says 29-year-old Cody Shanks was seen by several children as they were exiting a school bus on January 10, exposing himself from a nearby yard.

YCSO says they’ve received similar reports in the area recently and were investigating.

Based on their investigation, YCSO located and arrested Shanks at his work nearby the next day.

Shanks was booked on two felony counts of indecent exposure to a child under 15 years of age.

He has since been released on a $25,000 bond.
