Police seek exposure victims after man arrested in MAX train incident
Beaverton police are asking the public's help in identifying additional victims of a Hillsboro man arrested on Saturday for allegedly exposing himself to a female passenger on a TriMet MAX train.
A Beaverton police officer assigned to TriMet's Transit Police Division arrested Peter Hart Henderson, 41, of Hillsboro, on Thursday after a security camera indicated he exposed himself to a woman riding the train. Henderson was lodged at the Washington County Jail on an accusation of felony public indecency, said Mike Rowe, spokesman for the Beaverton Police Department.
On May 21, Beaverton police took a report of an adult male exposing himself at the Canyon Place Shopping Center at Southwest 117th Avenue and Canyon Road. The suspect, later identified as Henderson, was described as being 5-feet, 10-inches tall with a stocky build and light brown hair, wearing a plaid shirt, tan pants and a brown hoodie.
The suspect would typically enter a business and ask for a safety pin because he had a problem with his pants. He would then let his pants fall to the ground, exposing the naked lower half of his body. After exposing himself, the suspect would pull his pants back up and leave the area, Rowe said.
Beaverton police would like to identify other possible victims of Henderson or witnesses to his actions. Anyone with information is asked to please call the department at 503-629-0111.
