Alabama man arrested in New Smyrna Beach for indecent exposure

VOLUSIA COUNTY, Fla. — Deputies on the Volusia Sheriff’s Office Beach Patrol arrested an Alabama man who’s accused of exposing himself to people on three different occasions.


The first victim contacted the sheriff’s office at approximately 6 p.m. Saturday to report that a man approached her as she was parked at the Hiles off-beach parking lot on S. Atlantic Ave. in New Smyrna Beach.

Deputies say the victim told them that after a brief conversation with the man, he walked between two cars and returned completely naked.

The victim said the suspect then simulated sex acts in front of her while asking her to take a picture with him.

Deputies say the victim told the suspect to leave multiple times, but he refused until she picked up her phone to call 911.

The victim said the suspect then left the area in his car.

While still on scene investigating the initial incident, deputies learned that a man matching the suspect’s description was parked at JB’s Fish Camp, approximately three miles away.

Two more victims then made contact with the deputies and said they saw McKelvey masturbating in his car.

Deputies say the victims told them they also saw McKelvey get out of his car and remove his shorts, standing nude in the restaurant parking lot.

One of the victims recorded the incident with their phone and provided the video to deputies.
