The Somerset County Prosecutor’s Office has arrested a man they say allegedly exposed himself to a juvenile victim in the area of an educational facility located in Montgomery Township.
According to the prosecutor’s office, on Saturday, Oct. 1, a juvenile victim reported to police that an unknown male pulled down his pants and exposed himself to her as she was walking by him.
The victim was interviewed by detectives and an investigation was conducted. As a result, Shuai Shen, 54, of Princeton, was identified as a possible suspect.
On Saturday, Oct. 8, while conducting a surveillance detail at the facility, officers observed Shen arrive and enter the facility wearing similar clothes as to what he was wearing on Oct. 1. Shen was observed entering the facility and then exiting a few minutes later. 
At this point, police approached Shen, placed him in custody without incident and transported him to the Montgomery Police Department. Shen was charged with third degree endangering the welfare of a child and fourth degree lewdness. Shen was lodged in the Somerset County Jail pending a detention hearing in this matter.
Anyone with information relating to the incident is urged to contact the Somerset County Prosecutors Office Sex Crimes/Child Abuse Unit at (908) 231-7100 or the Montgomery Township Police Department at (908) 359-3222 or via the STOPit app.
