A Wallingford man is accused of touching himself in front of children waiting for the bus, police said.
The father of an 11-year-old girl told Wallingford police on Sept. 26 that an older man living on Yale Avenue was acting suspiciously for several weeks. He explained that on multiple occasions the man, later identified as Edward Buijnarowski, stood outside behind a tarp or car door and appeared to be touching himself while watching children at the bus stop, police said.
On Sept. 27, the father obtained video of the 72-year-old touching himself in plain view of two children at the bus stop with no attempt to conceal himself, Wallingford police said.
Buijnarowski was arrested and acknowledged that he could see kids across the street as he touched himself, according to Wallingford police.
He was charged with two counts of risk of injury to a minor, breach of peace and public indecency. His bond was set at $2,500.
