A Pompano Beach man is facing a lewd and lascivious exhibition charge after authorities say he exposed himself and masturbated in front of a 14-year-old girl as she waited at a school bus stop.

Reginald Renee Johnson, 41, was arrested Sunday for the incident that happened back on April 23 at the stop at 1200 Northwest 3rd Avenue, according to the Broward Sheriff's Office.

Johnson was being held on $50,000 bond Thursday, records showed. It was unknown whether he has an attorney.

According to the BSO, Johnson performed the lewd act while looking directly at the girl as she waited for her school bus. After her bus arrived and drove her to school, she reported the incident.

"It just feels kind of weird, just hearing that happen. It feels crazy," said one student, whose parent asked to remain anonymous.

Neighbors said the act was unexpected from Johnson.

"It's crazy, because he never tried me or my baby like that. So, I'm just suprised," said a neighbor named Kia.

During Johnson's appearance in bond court, prosecutors said he has a lengthy criminal record including arrests for robbery, burglary and battery.

"It does appear that seven in the morning, I think anyone could say that it's reasonable that children waiting for a bus deserve to be left alone and not have, being accosted by grown men," Judge John Hurley said.

Johnson's mother responded to the judge by saying he was trying to get his life together and trying to get a job. She said he was a good boy and that she couldn't belive he had done something like this.

The BSO believes there may be other victims who were targeted by Johnson and are asking anyone with information to call Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS.
