Phillip John Ortega

This is the top story on NewsOK. It's the top story for a good reason.

Police arrested an Oklahoma City man early this week after a woman said he approached her wearing a woman's swimsuit, panty hose and makeup and exposed his genitals.

Phillip John Ortega [picture above], 56, remained at the Oklahoma County jail today in lieu of $4,000 bail, online jail records show. Police arrested him on an indecent exposure complaint about 12:40 a.m. Monday after the incident in the 1700 block of NW 9, according to a police report released today.

The victim told police she was smoking a cigarette on her porch when the man, whom she at first thought was a woman, walked toward her, the report states. He was wearing a pink, one-piece swimsuit and asked her "Where'd my friend go?"

The woman said she felt uneasy and asked the man to go away, according to the report. He used his left hand to pull the bathing suit to the side and his right hand to pull out his genitals, shaking them and saying, "Hey, look at this."...

Online corrections and court records show Ortega is on probation for a six-year suspended sentence related to a 2007 felony attempted kidnapping case in Oklahoma County. Ortega pleaded guilty to the charge in November.

I kind of want to write about how terrifying it would be to have this guy attempt to kidnap you, but I don't think there's anything I can write that's worthy of this story and picture.  Now I'm going to go throw-up.
