PORTLAND, Ore. —

An Oregon man who spent time in prison after being accused of snipping or gluing female bus passengers' hair has been arrested again - this time accused of lewd behavior on buses.

The Oregonian reports ( http://is.gd/hzTBg4) that investigators allege 26-year-old Jared Weston Walter has masturbated and ejaculated into the hair of several female TriMet bus passengers.

Sgt. Pete Simpson says the first two victims were unsure what had happened. However, police say Monday's victim realized what had happened and reported it quickly. Officers pulled video from the bus and also collected DNA evidence from the woman's hair. By Monday afternoon, transit police had arrested Walter.

Walter was sentenced to a little more than two years in June 2010 after pleading guilty to witness tampering. The newspaper says he also was serving time for burglary and identity theft counts. He was released less than two months ago.

Now he's charged with third-degree sexual abuse, public indecency, harassment and interfering with public transportation.
