A 79-year-old man was arrested Wednesday night for allegedly masturbating in front of his teenage neighbor.
Harry Haroutounian was allegedly exposing himself and masturbating in the front walkway of the victim’s home when she saw him through a front window shortly before midnight, said Modesto Police Department spokeswoman Heather Graves. She said the suspect also allegedly held up a picture of a woman in a bikini.
Haroutounian has a pending case in Stanislaus Superior Court for a similar alleged incident with the same victim last year.
To protect the girl’s identity, Graves would only say that she is under the age of 16 and that the incident occurred in northeast Modesto.
Haroutounian was arrested on suspicion of annoying or molesting a child and indecent exposure.
