A Dawson County man has been arrested by local authorities after he allegedly exposed his genitals to a woman at a gas station on Canton Highway in Forsyth County.

Samuel Reaves Davis, 29, of Dawsonville has been arrested and charged with public indecency by the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office.

According to a sheriff’s office incident report, on Saturday, May 11, a local woman was pumping gas at the Marathon Food Mart at 4664 Canton Highway when a black Ford Expedition pulled up alongside her vehicle and a male suspect, later identified as Davis, asked for directions to Acworth.

“When she stepped on the other side of the gas pump and looked inside the vehicle, she noticed the male was either not wearing pants … she observed his penis out and his hand was on his penis actively masturbating,” the report states.

As the Ford left the gas station, the woman was able to take a picture of its tag, the report states.

From the vehicle’s tag, witness testimony and video surveillance from the gas station, detectives were able to identify Davis as a suspect and take him into custody on Wednesday, according to sheriff’s office spokesman Cpl. Doug Rainwater.

Davis was briefly held in the Forsyth County Jail on Wednesday before being released on a $2,770 bond, Rainwater said.

Attempts to reach Davis for comment were unsuccessful as of press time.
