• A 47 year-old Niantic man was arrested on a warrant at 3:30 p.m. charging him with public indecency. The accused was operating a Subaru bearing Connecticut plate AK90141 on Route 154 in Deep River when spotted by officers who were aware of the outstanding arrest warrant. The alleged victims in the case were an 18 year-old Killingworth woman and a 17 year old girl who were exposed to the accused while he was washing his genitals in the sink at the gym at the Piano Works apartment complex. He had left the door to the bathroom open to public view. According to the details of the arrest warrant application, the accused then stood in the doorway of the bathroom and masturbated in front of the girls. The witnesses stated that earlier, then the accused walked past them on the way to the gym bathroom, had had emanated the strong odor of marijuana and cigarette smoke. The accused stated that while in the gym he experienced groin pain. He explained that he had a cut in his groin area and decided to wash the cut in the gym bathroom. He stated that he saw the two females but proceed to the bathroom. He explained to police that he could only focus on one task at a time due his being tired and because he believed he had low blood sugar at the time. He said he left the bathroom door open and proceeded to wash his genitals, but that he was not masturbating. Although the security cameras at the complex were not functional at the time, according to the facility manager’s statement to police, officers felt there was probable cause to apply for the arrest warrant. The accused was processed on a $2,500 bond.
