Man accused of indecent exposure outside Westmoreland Mall
Charges were filed Monday against a Hempfield man who state police said was seen touching himself outside of Westmoreland Mall.
Brennan Touchet, 29, is charged with indecent exposure, open lewdness and disorderly conduct.
Two women reported seeing Touchet allegedly performing what appeared to be a sex act on himself in a parking lot at the Hempfield mall on Sept. 15 at 6:20 p.m. The women described the suspect to troopers and told them he was wearing a restaurant hat and T-shirt, according to court papers.
Troopers identified Touchet with the help of a manager at that restaurant and security images provided by mall security. Touchet told investigators he is aroused by “the potential of being caught” touching himself in a public place, according to the complaint.
He did not have an attorney listed in online court records. He could not be reached. The charges will be mailed by summons.
