A 33-year-old Trafford man was arrested Friday by borough police after being accused of exposing himself near a school bus stop.

Christian R. Davis was charged by police with two counts of indecent exposure and one count of disorderly conduct before Harrison City District Judge Helen Kistler following the alleged incident that occurred about 3:20 p.m. Friday near the corner of Fairmont Avenue and Fifth Street.

Officer Matthew Dechicchis said the department received complaints from multiple witnesses that Davis, who resides on the 600 block of Fifth Street, exposed himself as he urinated on the street as children were being dropped off at a bus stop.

When Dechicchis approached Davis at the scene, the officer reported Davis “claimed he had done nothing wrong … and also that he had been threatened by the witnesses following his actions.”

However, Dechicchis reported multiple witnesses gave police statements. A video was taken by a witness, Dechicchis reported.

Davis was arraigned before Night Court Judge Anthony Bompiani and released on $10,000 unsecured bond pending a preliminary hearing Oct. 23 before Kistler.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
