HARTFORD — A city man was arrested today for allegedly masturbating in full view of a female who was parked in the lot adjacent to a Russ Street apartment building, police said.
The suspect, Hector Luis Vasquez, aka Hector Juan Vasquez, 48, of 26 Russ St., Apt. A-4, was charged with public indecency, interfering with police, and breach of peace.
On Sept. 29, at about 6:00 am, Hartford Police responded to the area near the State Supreme Court on a report of a naked man standing next to a fully opened window masturbating in full view of a female who was parked in the lot adjacent to 26 Russ St., police said.
This morning Vasquez allegedly masturbated for about 10 minutes until police arrived on the scene.
Vasquez then moved from the open window and fled.
Hartford Police Captain Joseph Buyak found Vasquez hiding in an alcove in the hall way of the apartment building.
A witness positively identified Vasquez, police said.
Similar lewd acts have been reported by women working at the Supreme Court during previous weeks, police said.
