Police: Trumbull teen exposed himself, requested sex act at gym

A Trumbull teen is facing charges after he allegedly exposed himself and requested a sexual favor from a female resident of the Royce of Trumbull apartment complex on Old Town Road.

According to reports, the 17-year-old entered the gym area of the complex where the female was exercising about 5:30 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 12. The male began working out and at about 6 p.m. the woman finished her workout and was leaving the facility when the suspect followed her out. As they walked back towards the residential area, the male approached the victim from behind and said, “excuse me” to get her attention, then exposed his genitals and asked for a sexual favor, police said.

The woman responded, “Are you kidding me?” and said she was going to call the police. The suspect fled into the complex, but the victim was able to identify him from video surveillance recorded inside the gym.

The suspect was later brought to police headquarters where he admitted to the incident, police said. He was charged with public indecency and breach of peace and was referred to Juvenile Court and released to his parents’ custody.
