High school soccer coach exposes himself to girl walking down the street: Cops

Authorities in Connecticut say a high school soccer coach was inside of his vehicle in October when he flashed a young girl standing nearby.

According to the New York Post, 29-year-old David Sharpe was arrested on Saturday in connection with the alleged crime in Fairfield earlier this year.

The girl was walking in an area near Old Post Road and South Benson Road when the suspect allegedly exposed himself to her.

It was unclear from initial reports whether the suspect knew the alleged victim or how old she is.

The young victim reportedly told police about the October 23 incident, describing both the suspect and vehicle he was in at the time.

According to police, Sharpe exposed his genitals to the young girl. A similar incident occurred the previous month in Norwalk, but it was unclear from available reports if authorities in that city believe the cases are related.

Fairfield Police Lt. Robert Kalamaras said investigators in his agency and the Norwalk Police Department could present additional charges in the future.

Reports indicate Sharpe had served as the girls’ soccer coach at Staples High School in Westport prior to the allegations. He has since resigned from the position.

A social media page linked to the suspect indicated he also worked in the human resources department of Thomson Reuters. The company did not initially provide a statement, but suggested it would further investigate the allegations against Sharpe.

As CT Post reported, he is expected to appear in court on December 13.
