Police say Christopher Bryant Junkin of Cartersville videotaped himself in the act, and witnesses got recordings of their own, which they turned over to authorities.
According to the warrant for his arrest, those witnesses said Junkin was driving a blue Pontiac on Aug. 2 when he pulled up next to them at the intersection while they were stopped at a red light. They told police they saw Junkin touching himself. Along with the video they recorded of him, they were able to identify one of the letters of Junkin’s car tag.
The next day, another witness described a similar experience at the same intersection, and also said the suspect was driving a blue Pontiac. That person was able to provide more letters of Junkin’s tag, which helped police identify him as a suspect.
Junkin was arrested Friday on two counts of public indecency and had not posted his $20,000 bail at press time.
He has been a registered sex offender since 2005 after being convicted of child molestation. Junkin was also arrested in 2009 on a public indecency charge at the Mall of Georgia in Gwinnett County.
