A man is behind bars after exposing himself to a 5-year-old child at Meijer in Howell.

Krystle Coates tells WJBK she was shopping with her children when the man revealed his private parts to the girl.

Less than 48 hours later, Michigan State Police were able to identify and arrest 48-year-old Troy Creekmore, who is a registered sex offender. Creekmore was arrested in 1996 on criminal sexual conduct charges involving a child.
