HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – The Horry County Police Department has arrested a Myrtle Beach man witnesses said was exposing himself inside his vehicle May 26.

According to a police report, officers received a complaint from a witness who said she saw a man exposing himself in his car in the parking lot of a Dollar General along Highway 707 and engaging in a sex act on himself.

The witness also told police she went inside the store to inform a clerk and when she left, she could still see the man exposing himself inside his vehicle.

At that time, the witness said she wrote down the vehicle's tag number and left the area to contact the police.

According to the report, officers ran the tag information and identified the suspect as David Lee Edwards, 56. Upon being interviewed by officers, Edwards alleged he was in the parking lot in his car, but had an itch.

He stated he scratched the itch, but never exposed himself.

According to online booking records from the J. Reuben Long Detention Center, Edwards was arrested and booked June 5 around noon.

He has been charged with indecent exposure and bail has not yet been set.
