Arkansas authorities say they have arrested a sex offender accused of exposing himself near a boy, the Hot Springs Sentinel-Record reported Friday.

Hot Springs police arrested Timothy Neal Watts, 37, around 9:15 a.m. Wednesday, after receiving a report from the Child Abuse Hotline about a crime involving an 8-year-old boy.

The boy said he was sleeping when he awoke and saw the man leaning over him, according to a probable cause affidavit cited by the newspaper. The man was said to be playing with his “middle part” while his pants were unzipped, according to the affidavit.

Watts, who faces a charge of sexual indecency with a child, is being held at Garland County jail in lieu of $2,500 bond. He has a previous conviction in Louisiana of attempted indecent behavior with juveniles and is listed on the Garland County sex offender registry.

His next court appearance is scheduled for Sept. 26.
