First Published Feb 11 2014 10:03 pm • Last Updated Feb 12 2014 09:06 am

A 4-year-old girl pointed police in Layton to a man suspected in multiple acts of lewdness and possession of child pornography.

The girl on Monday told her mother that a man had exposed himself to her while they were shopping at Target earlier in the day. Surveillance footage helped officers identify a 23-year-old Layton man as the suspect, police wrote in a press statement.

The man was arrested at a Lowe’s store in Layton, where police found "numerous videos and images depicting child pornography" on his cell phone.

Investigators later found that the man matched the description of a suspect who allegedly exposed himself at the Lowe’s store in November; he also is suspected of exposing himself at the Layton Walmart within the last month.

The man is believed to have been at Target between 12:45 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. Monday. Shoppers who have any information about these cases may call Layton police at 801-336-3443.
