The components of this story almost seem too comical to be true, but a man by the name of Michael Dick has been arrested in a place called Tickle Creek for the crime of exposing himself.

Mr Dick, who really should know better than to indulge in such an activity given his unfortunate name, was found half naked and with a wig covering his bald head by way of a curious disguise. 

Investigators in the American state of Oregon served search a warrant at Dick's home and found evidence that led them to believe he was the suspect in the earlier flashings. Dick's pickup truck was similar to the suspect vehicle, which was photographed by witnesses and released by police.

Dick is a registered sex offender, and is said to have matched the description of suspects in at least 12 similar offences.

He previously broke into a woman's house in 2008 naked and tried to assault her and he was also caught pleasuring himself in front of women up to two dozen times.

Local police claimed to be "delighted to get him off the street", with his bail set at $200,000. He is due to appear back in court next month.
