Jose Gort was seen exposing his sexual organs in parking lot, police say

DORAL, Fla. – A man accused of exposing himself to several women in the parking lot of the Dadeland Mall has been arrested.

Miami-Dade police said Jose Gort, 26, exposed himself to at least four women on three different occasions. 

The first incident happened Dec. 29, 2015. According to a police report, Gort was driving a gold Cadillac SUV through the mall parking lot when he drove by the victim and lifted himself from the driver's seat, exposing his penis to her.

The first victim was able to take a picture of Gort's SUV as he drove away. 

Gort did the same thing two more times, once on Jan. 9, 2016 and another time on Jan. 30, 2016, police said. According to one of the victims, during the last exposure incident, Gort was driving a white Dodge Charger. 

Police were able to track down the vehicle's owner, who is also Gort's girlfriend. Gort's girlfriend explained to police that her gold Cadillac SUV had been in a crash and she had been issued a white Dodge Charger as a rental car. 

Gort's girlfriend told police Gort is the only other person who had access to her vehicles. 

Gort was arrested on three counts of indecent exposure. He has since been released on $4,500 bail.
