A Scarsdale Public Library patron reported a fellow patron after she said she spotted some suspicious behavior.
On August 17, the woman told SPD that a man "sitting near hear, continuously reached in between his legs," the police report stated.
The woman was not able to see what the patron was doing because "he had a book covering his lap," the report stated. However, the complainant told SPD that she believed the man "was fondling himself when he reached between his legs."
According to the report, the female patron felt uncomfortable and left the room, when the male patron followed.
The female patron alerted library staff and called the police.
Police interviewed the male patron, who said, "he was only pressing on his right side because of his hernia."
Police asked the man to leave the library and not return.
