Cottage Grove man arrested after alleged flashing at Madison beach

MADISON (WKOW) — A Cottage Grove man asked a woman for a light, then exposed himself at a popular Madison beach Tuesday afternoon, police said.

According to reports, Allan R. Bakken, 64, approached the woman at the Olbrich Park Beach to ask a question. She says she then noticed Bakken had exposed himself, according to police. When the woman said she was calling police, Bakken reportedly asked her not to, said it was an accident and walked away.

Police say the woman’s cell phone photos helped them catch Bakken.
