Man arrested for sexual misconduct near Columbia schools

A Brookfield man was arrested in reference to a sexual misconduct investigation near Columbia's Bethel Park.

26-year-old Anthony Michael Sada is being held on $4,500 bond for felony sexual misconduct involving a child. He turned himself in after being named as a suspect in the Bethel Park incident.

On Sept. 10, two teenage girls were walking home from school when they spotted a man masturbating in his SUV at Bethel Park and notified police.

He was initially arrested on October 21 after he exposed himself inside a business in the 500 block of East Nifong.

In that case, he was arrested for misdemeanor sexual misconduct in the second degree.
