MANSFIELD, OH - A Mansfield man recently arrested on charges related to possession of child pornography has admitted to publicly exposing himself to women and children between 30 and 100 times- but there are no reports of such incidents. Now the Mansfield Police Department is asking victims or anyone with information to step forward.

Terry Gutshall was originally arrested October 30th after his IP address was found to have downloaded and shared numerous images of child pornography. After the 41-year-old was arrested and charged with receiving, possessing and/or distributing child pornography, he admitted to exposing himself potentially 100 times over the past six years of his residency in the city of Mansfield. Gutshall exposed himself to children ranging in age from kindergarten to high school as well as women, usually near bus stops or by his apartment complex by South Main Street.

Police searched their database but found no reports of incidents with Gutshall. "Just by looking at it, the gentleman has a serious problem. That's the last thing we want in the city of Mansfield," said Lieutenant Robert Skropits. "If there are people out there that have seen this, or was approached, you know that can be a very trying time on them and they may not have wanted to say anything. So it's also trying to get people help that may have been approached by this gentleman and been too afraid to say anything."

Police would like to document any incidents they can in order to file the appropriate charges. Any victims of Gutshall's behavior or anyone with information regarding the alleged incidents is encouraged to contact Ryan Anschutz of the FBI Child Exploitation Task Force. His phone number is 419-755-9764.
