Theodore John Keipes III - Repeat Sex Offender

A 45-year-old registered sex offender was arrested Thursday for allegedly exposing himself to a Lenoir-Rhyne University student.

The student called police Tuesday and reported that a man inside a pickup truck exposed himself and was masturbating as she walked near the track on campus.

The man, identified as Theodore John Keipes III of Hickory, fled the scene when Lenoir-Rhyne security arrived.

Hickory police arrested Keipes on Thursday and charged him with indecent exposure. He was being held in Catawba County Jail under $8,000 bond.

The North Carolina Sex Offender Registry shows that Keipes was convicted of attempted rape in 1987.
