Milpitas Police (MPD) have arrested a sex offender for exposing himself to a woman in a parking lot.
At approximately 6:49 a.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 10, MPD received a call from a woman who reported that a male had exposed his genitals to her in the parking lot of a building in the 1100 block of E. Calaveras Boulevard. The victim, a 34-year-old woman, said she immediately got in her car, drove away, and called the police.
Officers immediately responded to the area with a description of the suspect, provided by the victim.
Officers located Joe Maggi, a 32-year-old Milpitas resident, in the area of the original incident. Maggi’s appearance matched the description provided by the victim. The victim later identified Maggi as the person who had exposed himself. Maggi was arrested without incident.
Upon further investigation, the Milpitas Police Department determined that Maggi was a registered sex offender. State law requires sex offenders to register within five business days with the local police department in the city in which they reside. Maggi was out of compliance by failing to register with Milpitas Police Department when he moved into the city.
Maggi was booked into Santa Clara County Main Jail for indecent exposure, and failing to register as a sex offender.
