PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

A sex offender and serial exposer has pleaded guilty to five counts of public indecency.

Michael Gordon Dick, 54, entered his plea in court Tuesday.

Dick was arrested last March after police received calls about a naked man walking around masturbating in the area of Kelso Road and Tickle Creek near Boring.

Investigators said each report was very similar to crimes that previously occurred in the Boring and Eagle Creek areas beginning in late 2014.

Deputies served a search warrant at Dick's home in Gresham and said they found evidence to connect him to the previous cases, including a Chevy S10 pickup that matches the suspect vehicle that was photographed during the earlier crimes.

In those cases, a white man in a black pickup drove past women walking along the roadway or working in their yards, stopped his truck, got out naked and began touching himself.

There were more than a dozen similar incidents – at least 11 in Clackamas County and three in Multnomah County – prior to Dick's arrest.  A sketch of the suspect, who was wearing a wig, was released in February 2015.

Dick was originally charged with 12 counts of public indecency before pleading guilty to five counts Tuesday.  

He is scheduled to be sentenced on April 29.

Dick is a registered sex offender as a result of a December 2008 case in which he entered an elderly woman's home in east Multnomah County fully nude and attempted to assault her, according to deputies.
