POCONO SUMMIT, Pa. -

 Joseph Lombardo, 46, of Hazleton has been arrested after exposing himself to a 10-year-old girl Sunday in Pocono Summit.

Lombardo was arrested Monday by Pocono Mountain Regional Police and charged with one count of indecent exposure and one count of open lewdness.

On Sunday, the girl was with her mother, who was getting gas at Joe's Kwik Mart at Pocono Summit. Police said Lombardo pulled his car next to them. He opened his car door, revealing he was only wearing a pair of white underpants. He  then exposed himself to the young girl and performed a lewd act in front of her.

Police believe there could be related incidents and ask anyone with information to contact Detective John P. Bohrman at Pocono Mountain Regional Police at 570-895-2400.

The suspect was arraigned by Magisterial District Judge Anthony Fluegel of Tobyhanna, who set bail at $10,000. Unable to post bail, Lombardo was committed to the Monroe County Correctional Facility.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for 10 a.m. Thursday before Magisterial District Judge Richard Claypool of Pocono Pines, but probably will be continued, according to police.
