A 24-year-old Roy man is accused of masturbating at a post office in front of a grandmother and two young girls.
When deputies tried to arrest him, the man allegedly pulled his penis out of his pajama pants and made suggestive comments to a female deputy.
On Monday, the man was ordered jailed in lieu of $100,000 bail after pleading not guilty to two counts of indecent exposure, one with a victim under the age of 14, and resisting arrest.
Charging papers give this account:
Never miss a local story.
The grandmother went to the post office to retrieve her mail with her 13-year-old granddaughter and the granddaughter’s 12-year-old friend.
When they walked out of the building, the defendant was standing there masturbating so the grandmother quickly ushered the girls to the car.
“She said the girls saw what happened as well and they were scared,” records show.
They drove to a parking lot across state Route 507 and called police.
While the grandmother was speaking with a dispatcher, the man allegedly ran across the street, stood in front of their car and again touched himself.
Deputies found the man on a nearby street and took him into custody after a brief struggle.
While being driven to the jail, the man allegedly said he exposed himself “because his pants were just like that” and asked the female deputy if she’d like to hang out sometime.
He has two previous convictions for indecent exposure, records show.
