An Islip Terrace man who exposed himself to a female jogger in a Babylon park was arrested Thursday afternoon, Suffolk County police said.

Juan Fuentes, 27, was being held at the First Precinct late Thursday on a third-degree stalking charge, police said.

A 17-year-old girl was walking on the north path at Southards Pond Park on Monday morning when the suspect approached from the opposite direction and started jogging behind her, police said.

She turned around and saw that he was naked, holding his clothes, police said.

He continued to pursue her until she ran from the park, police said in a news release.

Suffolk officers arrested Fuentes at his job, Belmont Twins Deli in West Babylon, following an investigation.
