Santa Barbara Police say one man has been arrested after exposing himself to female juveniles in Downtown Santa Barbara Saturday.

Police say around 12:30 p.m., dispatchers received numerous 911 calls reporting a man exposing himself young girls in the 600 block of State Street near Starbucks.

The man left the area before the minors were able to tell their parent what happened, according to police.

Officers driving in the area of State Street and Cota Street found a person matching the description given by the girls and arrested 31-year-old Bryant Colby Sluder.

Police say Sluder was positively identified and he was placed on a "no bail" detainer for his alleged crimes.

Santa Barbara police are asking if other victims recognize Sluder, to give them a call.
