LIMERICK — A man who previously pleaded guilty to exposing himself in public parks has been arrested for allegedly exposing himself to two young girls.
Barclay Timothy Rile, 62, is being held at Montgomery County Correctional Facility on $50,000 cash bail after he was arrested Saturday and charged with indecent exposure, open lewdness and corruption of minors, all misdemeanors.
An affidavit of probable cause related to the case said an 11-year-old girl and her 12-year-old friend were swimming in a pool at the back of the 11-year-old’s home when the incident occurred.
After they got out of the pool, the 11-year-old saw her neighbor, Rile, know to her as “Tim,” walking in the backyard of his Heather Drive home which “borders” hers, police said. Rile was roughly 25 feet away from the girl, facing her, she told police.
“She noticed that the defendant did not have a shirt on, was wearing khaki or tan really short shorts and his private area was exposed,” the affidavit said.
Rile was allegedly masturbating as he stood “in plain view of [the victim],” according to the affidavit.
“[She] became scared and hid on the far side of her pool, hidden from the view of the defendant,” the affidavit said, before she called her friend over.
Police were called and responded around 2:23 p.m. They spoke to a woman “who stated that she was watching” the girls “from her rear steps as they were swimming.”
That woman told police she saw Rile “in high-cut, loose shorts” about 20 minutes before the girls left the pool.
Rile was arrested by Limerick Police Sunday and arraigned that morning before District Judge Scott Palladino. A hearing is scheduled before District Judge Walter Gadzicki Jr. July 30.
In October, 2012, Rile was charged with six counts of indecent exposure, according to court documents.
Police responded to Limerick Community Park for reports of a man exposing himself and arrested Rile, who confessed to exposing himself there and other areas as well, according to a Digital First Media report at that time.
He pleaded guilty to two of the charges related to that case in March, 2013, and received four years probation.
His name does not appear on an online database of Megan’s Law offenders in Pennsylvania.
