Third man booked in rash of public masturbation arrests
ST. TAMMANY - Police have made a handful of arrests in a bizarre spike of public masturbation cases.
Austin Cyr, 22, turned himself in to the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff's Office on Wednesday after learning of the warrant for his arrest issued earlier this month. Cyr allegedly began masturbating in his vehicle while watching a woman that had pulled into an adjacent parking spot.
Thomas Beall, 37, was arrested Tuesday evening in separate incident after another woman called to report a naked man sitting in his vehicle and masturbating in a public parking lot.
Travis Mannit, 42, was arrested Thursday after a passerby flagged down a patrolling deputy to notify the deputy Mannit was masturbating in his vehicle. Mannit confessed when confronted by deputies and was taken custody.
All three men were booked into the St. Tammany Parish Correctional Center for obscenity.
