For Immediate Release: Thursday, April 2, 2015

Officers from the Montgomery County Police Department have arrested Kevin Thomas McHale, age 27, of the 1600 block of Marshall Avenue in Rockville and have charged him with eight counts of indecent exposure. During these incidents, McHale would make inappropriate sexual comments to the female victims and expose himself. Five of the eight victims are between the ages of 13 and 17.
