A Derry Township man is accused of exposing himself to three boys and a 16-year-old girl last month at Legion Keener Park in Latrobe, according to court papers.

Jesse Phillip Hollick, 61, is charged with open lewdness and public drunkenness.

Latrobe police said the girl, who was babysitting the boys, reported the group was walking in the park at 6:30 p.m. and heard a man’s voice near a railroad trestle. They saw a man with gray hair and a mustache exposing his genitals and hurried away, the girl told police.

While police were interviewing the boys, another person reported a “strange male” near the trestle. Officers found a man there matching the girl’s description who was later identified as Hollick. Police reported he was “highly intoxicated.”

The girl identified the suspect as the man she saw exposing himself. Charges have been sent by summons.

Hollick is scheduled for preliminary arraignment Sept. 5. He did not have an attorney listed in online court records. A phone number for him could not be located.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

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.
