A 36-year-old Kings Highway East resident was arrested early Monday morning after police said he was seen masturbating on his front porch.

Police were called around 4 a.m. by a woman who delivers newspapers for the Connecticut Post. She said the man, later identified as Richard Walzak, was standing on his front porch, wearing a red robe that was open at the front, exposing his genitals.

As she drove by to deliver the paper to one of Walzak's neighbors, she said Walzak began to masturbate, according to the report.

When an officer went to the house, through the window he could see a red robe hanging on a closet door, police said.

Walzak allegedly did the same thing on four earlier occasions, the delivery woman told police, according to the report.

He was released on a $2,500 bond after being charged with public indecency and second-degree breach of peace. He is scheduled to appear Nov. 24 in state Superior Court in Bridgeport.
