David Edmund Kinsey - Repeat Sex Offender

A Valley man who is a registered sex offender is accused of fondling a 60-year-old woman and sexually assaulting another woman in her motorized scooter while naked.David Edmund Kinsey, 38, was arrested by Phoenix police at his Tempe home June 2, according to a report released Thursday.

Kinsey is accused in two incidents.

The first took place March 5 in Phoenix where Kinsey allegedly fondled a 63-year-old woman in a common laundry room near Cave Creek Road and 7th Street.

The second incident happened March 20th near Thomas Road and 7th Street.

This time, a 40-year-old woman was in her motorized scooter chair out in public when Kinsey pulled up alongside in his silver Nissan pickup truck.

He was naked and when he stepped out of the truck, he sexually assaulted the woman before driving away, according to the report.

Investigators from Phoenix, Mesa, Glendale and Scottsdale police departments believe Kinsey is involved in more than a dozen cases of indecent exposure.

Additional charges against Kinsey are expected as investigators compare information.

There are no known cases at this time in Tempe, where Kinsey resided.

Police believe Kinsey would drive to various locations in his silver Nissan pickup truck looking for women in the 40 to 70-year-old age range.

He would stop and ask the woman a question and when the woman stepped near his truck, Kinsey would expose himself or already be naked.

Kinsey’s arrest is now being made public since investigators have completed photo lineups with a number of victims or witnesses.

“These all took place in very public places.” Sgt. Joe Tranter said. “He could go mobile without anyone knowing.”

Tranter said they tracked him down after a tip came in from a woman who saw an ABC15 report last week.
