ACPD Arrests Man Suspected of Lewd Conduct in View of Children

Arlington County Police have arrested a man suspected of masturbating in public while staring at children.

The incident happened last Friday evening, just off Columbia Pike. Police say the 61-year-old man was watching children play at a playground, on the 900 block of S. Buchanan Street, while engaging in the lewd conduct.

“An unknown male suspect was observed masturbating behind a tree while watching children playing,” according to an ACPD crime report issued earlier this week. “The suspect fled on foot when approached by an adult in the area.”

Jose Sanchez, of no fixed address, has since been arrested and charged with masturbating in a public place, a police spokeswoman said today. He was held without bond.
