SHERWOOD Ore. (KPTV) – The Sherwood Police Department says a Hillsboro man is in custody after prowling an apartment complex and masturbating outside of a window.

According to authorities, officers found Armando Servin-Talavero on Oct. 10 around 7 a.m. after receiving reports of a man prowling the Sunfield Lake Apartment Complex. The caller told dispatchers they had seen a man looking inside multiple ground-floor apartment windows.

Further investigation revealed Servin-Talavero was seen outside of a window masturbating, officers reported.

Servin-Talavero was arrested and charged with public indecent Oct. 18.

People in the neighborhood say Sherwood is a very family-friendly, tight-knit community,

“Stick by each other, that’s one of the things I fell in love with about this town,” says resident Thomas Heicksen.

And they say they especially enjoy living at the Sunfield Lake Apartment Complex.

“A lot of families have been here for four to ten years and they’re good,” says resident Robert Ramm. “So you know nice neighborhood.”

People who spoke to FOX 12 added it was all the more surprising to hear about what led to a recent arrest.

“It surprises me in Sherwood because nothing ever happens in Sherwood,” says Heicksen. “Makes me a little more worried about where my daughter goes.”

And residents say after the recent arrest, they’ll be keeping a closer eye out for one another.

“We lock our doors, it’s not like the old days,” says Ramm. “Everybody needs to be vigilant – watch their children, check your doors, check your windows.”

Officers believe there may still be further victims and witnesses and are asking anyone who can assist in the investigation to contact the Sherwood P.D. at (503) 629-0111, and reference case # 222830130.
