New Bern man accused of masturbating at public library

Posted: Updated:
NEW BERN, N.C. -

A New Bern man is behind bars after police say he masturbated in front of a library patron and ran from authorities.

Rajputana Roister Ridley, 37, was charged with indecent exposure, disorderly conduct, and resisting a public officer on Tuesday.

Court documents say Ridley created a disturbance at the New Bern-Craven County Public Library by exposing his penis in the presence of another person.

The masturbation was directed at a female library patron. The acts consisted of “sticking his hand inside of his pants and rubbing his genital area while making faces while standing and watching the subject,” documents say.

A New Bern police officer observed Ridley masturbating in front of the woman, the documents say. Ridley allegedly ran from a police officer after the officer instructed him to stop running and not move.

Ridley has a court date scheduled for October 2.
