Man accused of exposing himself to undercover police officer in Ann Arbor
A 43-year-old man is accused of exposing himself to an undercover police officer in August on East University Avenue and resisting arrest, Ann Arbor police said.
Charles Allan Schendel, of Monroe, is charged with aggravated indecent exposure and resisting and obstructing police.
He was arraigned Wednesday in 14A District Court in front of Magistrate Camille Horne and released on a promise to appear.
According to police and court records, Schendel was watching women as they were walking down the sidewalk in the 800 block of East University Avenue about 1:30 a.m. on Aug. 7. He struck up a conversation with a woman, who was an undercover police officer, and made sexual references, police said. During that conversation, police said Schendel's genitals were exposed.
Another officer ordered Schendel to the ground, police said, but he tried to get away before being taken into custody. University of Michigan police assisted in the investigation.
Schendel is scheduled to return to court Dec. 7 for a preliminary hearing.
