(Memphis) Daniel Lode faces four counts of indecent exposure and two counts of stalking after two 13-year-old middle school girls say the 37-year-old man pulled up to them  as they were walking to school and masturbated.

Police say he did it again two days later and this time followed them to their middle school.

The incidents happened January 9th and January 11th but Lode wasn’t arrested until yesterday.

We talked to mother of one girl.

We won't tell you her name to protect her daughter, but she said her child is still dealing with the emotional scars from that experience.

The girls were afraid but they were attentive and between the two they remembered the license plate on Lode's Nissan Xterra.

Police traced it back to a Whitehaven home not far away where Lode was arrested.

News Channel 3 found this isn’t the first time Lode has been arrested for Indecent Exposure.

Police arrested him on the same charge in 2010.
