OKLAHOMA CITY -- An Oklahoma City man is accused of exposing himself while wearing a women's bathing suit, panty hose and makeup.

Phillip John Ortega, 56, was arrested early Monday morning on a complaint of indecent exposure.

According to a police report, Ortega exposed himself to a woman who was standing on a porch near N. W. 98th Street and Indiana Avenue.

Terri Carter told police she was outside smoking a cigarette when she saw what she thought was a woman walking toward her. As the person got closer, she realized it was actually a man who was wearing a women's one-piece swim suit, panty hose and makeup.

The man kept asking "Where'd my friend go?" The woman told him she didn't know what he was talking about and asked him to not get any closer.

The man then pulled out his genitals and told the woman "Hey, look at this."

This guy come up, I could tell it was a guy, but he was dressed up in like a woman's pink bathing suit with pantyhose and a white sweater and makeup looking like a woman, dressed like a woman. He come up, pulled out his thing and said 'here,'" Carter said.

Police searched the neighborhood and located Ortega a few blocks away. He matched the description and was later identified by the woman, according to the report.

Court records show Ortega was convicted of kidnapping a 12-year-old girl in 2008. He received a suspended sentence.

Ortega remained in the Oklahoma County jail on Thursday afternoon.
