MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A 27-year-old Shakopee man is accused of exposing himself to three young girls outside a Burnsville mall in June, according to charges filed in Dakota County.

J Patrick Michael Rowley faces one count of solicitation of a child to engage in sexual conduct and one count of indecent exposure (minor under 16 present with a prior conviction) – both felonies – in connection to the June 11, 2015 incident.

According to the criminal complaint, three female victims – ages 11 to 12 – reported to police that a man had exposed his penis to them outside the shopping mall. They reported that the man drove by them in his truck in such a way that they could see his penis.

The girls also reported that at one point, the man stopped the truck and said to the girls, “Hi girls, do you want some?” and masturbated in front of the girls, the complaint said.

Authorities say surveillance video from the mall was used to identify the truck driver as Rowley.

In 2007, Rowley was convicted of peeping in a window twice in Scott County. The same year, he was also convicted of indecent exposure in the presence of a minor in Scott County.
