Details on Incident #201009485ME: On 01/22/02 at 1734 hrs, Officer Bibbs 334 responded to a Holding Prisoner at [the new Central Library]. [The] victim advised she as on the second floor, of the Central Library, in the rear right side, when she observed the suspect s pants down and he was stroking his unerect penis, which was dark in color. Victim advised she told library personnel, who contacted security. Victim stated the subject had some books, containing nude paintings. Victim advised security detained the suspect and called the police. Officer arrived on the scene and the victim advised she couldn t identify the suspect as the person she observed masturbating, but could identify his penis. The suspect was released be security and a report was taken. Victim was given a copy of the victim right form.
To avoid future occurrences along these lines perhaps the library should consider replacing all art books containing nude paintings with copies of the Bible. Than again, that song of Solomon is pretty racy stuff.
