HARVARD – A 23-year-old Harvard man was arrested several days after he allegedly exposed himself to two girls younger than 13.

Harvard police responded about 7:45 p.m. Aug. 3 to the 200 block of Dewey Street in Harvard for a report of a man exposing himself to two young girls, according to a news release from the Harvard Police Department.

At the time, a suspect was identified but not arrested, and a warrant for sexual exploitation of a child was issued. About 2 p.m. Wednesday, Lucas E. Garcia-Garcia, of the 700 block of Dewey Street, Harvard, was arrested near his residence.

Garcia-Garcia was convicted of public indecency in 2016, according to court records. He was required to undergo sexual offender treatment multiple times.

Garcia-Garcia is being held at the McHenry County Jail in lieu of $25,000 bond. He would need to pay $2,500, or 10 percent of his bond, to post bail. If convicted, he could face one to three years in prison.

Garcia-Garcia is due in court Tuesday.
