No Bail for Man arrested on suspicion of false imprisonment, indecent exposure incidents in Palmdale and Lancaster, From Bail Bondsman in Palmdale/Lancaster

An Antelope Valley man has been arrested on suspicion of exposing himself to more than a dozen women in the Lancaster and Palmdale areas and allegedly holding a woman against her will with intent to sexually assault her, Los Angeles County sheriff's officials said Monday.

Authorities said that Terrance Lamount Smith, 21, exposed himself to at least 16 women and girls in incidents reported at apartment buildings around 25th Street West and Avenue J-4 in Lancaster.

Smith, who most recently was arrested April 19 on a probation violation, has been charged by the Los Angeles County district attorney's office with 18 counts: three felonies and 15 misdemeanors.

Smith had previously pleaded no contest to charges including assault with a firearm, causing great bodily injury and vandalism. He also has previous probation violations. If convicted, he faces a maximum sentence of 13 years in state prison, prosecutors said.

Sheriff's investigators said the suspect would go to the common areas of apartment buildings and target lone females, ranging in age from 13 to 58.

Los Angeles County Sheriff's Capt. Mike Parker said deputies set up surveillance operations in the areas where the victims lived.

"From there, they were able to identify several men who matched the description of the suspect," Parker said. "Ultimately, one of the suspects was identified by victims who picked the defendant out of a photo lineup."

After serving a search warrant at Smith's home, authorities said they found evidence tying him to the crimes and said he eventually confessed.

Sheriff's officials did not release specifics about the assault that took place in February, citing the ongoing investigation. But they said the incident took place in the laundry room of an apartment complex in Palmdale.

"The victims who reported these crimes helped us to detect a pattern that enabled us to make this arrest," Parker said.

Anyone with additional information is asked to call Lancaster sheriff's detectives at (661) 948-8466.
