Off-duty officer arrested on public lewdness charges on Long Island
An off-duty NYPD detective who works in Brooklyn was arrested on public lewdness charges on Long Island.
Rockville Centre police tell News 12 Robert Francis went into backyards and peered through windows while masturbating on at least four occasions, beginning on Feb. 5. They say two other incidents occurred on Feb. 25 and the most recent occurred Friday night.
News 12 is told the victims are teenage girls who attend the same high school. Police say they believe Francis randomly chose his victims, parking his car and then wandering the streets of Rockville Centre.
Francis was arrested, issued a desk appearance ticket and suspended from the NYPD.
