NORWALK, Conn. A teenage girl allegedly became the target of unwanted interest in the Norwalk Hospital Emergency Room on Tuesday evening as a man stared at her while masturbating.
Norwalk Police Sgt. David O'Connor said police were applying for an arrest warrant for the man, identified as a 57-year-old regular patient of the hospital.
The 14-year-old victim told Norwalk police that the older white man had been staring at her and making her feel uncomfortable as she sat in the ER's waiting room with her mother. The man, who was sitting across from her diagonally, put a jacket over his lap, unzipped his pants and moved his hands up and down. He made faces, stared at her and did other lewd things, she said, before she alerted her mother to the behavior.
Approached by security, the man denied everything and fled, O'Connor said.
