A 17-year-old Longview teenager was charged with indecency with a child Tuesday morning after police said he was found in his boxers with a nude 14-year-old girl in a Longview park.
Longview police were dispatched to Louis Jackson Park in the 200 block of Bill Owens Parkway about midnight Tuesday in connection with a suspicious vehicle.
According to arrest reports, Joshua Oshay Hale and the minor were observed in the back seat.
"When officers approached the vehicle, they observed the subjects hurriedly dressing," the report stated.
Police said when Hale opened the door to the vehicle, he was in his boxers, and the 14-year-old's genitals were exposed.
Police said both teens told police that they were just "hanging out."
Hale remained jailed Tuesday on $5,000 bond.
