A man was charged with public indecency after he was seen touching himself in a shopping plaza parking lot, police said Tuesday.
David Keune, 53, of Scott Drive also was charged with breach of peace after the Monday incident at Tri-City Plaza, they said.
According to police, they received a call about 3:50 p.m. from a citizen who reported that a man was masturbating in a vehicle in the parking lot. The caller gave police a description of the man, the car and the license plate number.
When officers arrived, the car was gone, but they later found it at the home of its owner. There, they also found Keune and arrested him, police said.
He was released on a promise to appear in Superior Court in Rockville on March 27, they said.
Police said they continue to investigate the case and ask anyone with information about it to call them at 860-872-9126.
