Police have arrested a 57-year-old man wanted since August for allegedly flashing a child at a Walmart store in Sandy.

An unidentified male in a wheelchair was reported to have exposed himself to a 7-year-old girl who was shopping with her mother and grandmother on Aug. 23. A surveillance photo of the man was released by the Sandy Police Department and was published in several media outlets, helping police to track down a suspect.

Steven Norman Powell was arrested Thursday on a warrant issued by the Salt Lake County District Attorney’s Office charging him with lewdness involving a child, a third-degree felony.

Powell, who pleaded guilty in 1988 to second-degree felony sex abuse of a child in Utah County, is a registered sex offender.
