    A registered sex offender is facing breach of peace and public indecency charges after a jogger told police he saw him on a trail without pants and with his genitals exposed, police said.

    Police arrested Richard Hammond, 52. of Stratford, on Saturday in connection to the May 10 incident.

    A jogger came up to a police officer to report seeing a exposed man on the Shelton Trails while he was jogging in the area of Shelton Avenue. The man, who wasn't wearing any pants and had his genitals exposed, gestured to the jogger and then darted into the woods, the jogger told police.

    Police found Hammond on the trails and identified him as the suspect.

    Hammond has been a registered sex offender since 1998, police said.

    Police charged him with second-degree breach of peace and public indecency.
