On January 25 at approximately 11:15 a.m. the Seneca Falls Police Department arrested a 16-year-old male following two separate police investigations.
Police responded to a local business for a report of an unknown male who was reportedly behaving in a lewd manner while exposing his intimate body parts.
The male had left prior to police arriving at the scene and could not be identified. Police were continuing to investigate this matter when they received another report from the same local business stating the male had returned to the store and was behaving in the same manner.
The male was located and identified by police as a 16-year-old, whose name is not being released due to his age.
The teen was charged with two counts of public lewdness and released to a parent. The teen was petitioned to family court and is to answer the charges at the Seneca County Probation Department at a later date and time.
