A week after allegedly exposing his genitals to a group of kids under water at the Hackettstown Community Pool, a Hackettstown man has been arrested and charged with multiple counts.

William O’Keefe, Jr., 41, was arrested Tuesday and charged with second degree sexual assault, third degree endangering the welfare of a child and disorderly person offense of lewdness.

On July 2, police responded to the pool after children told lifeguards a man who called himself “Billy” was showing his genitals to them under water and masturbating, police said. The man fled the area before police arrived around 2:30 p.m., however.

An investigation revealed a short time later O’Keefe exposed his penis and masturbated in front of an adult female in the 100 block of Liberty Street, Hackettstown Police said.

New Jersey State Police released an eye witness composite sketch of O’Keefe Tuesday. The Hackettstown Detective Bureau received a tip from someone who saw the sketch, which led to the questioning of O’Keefe, police said.

O’Keefe is being held in Warren County Correctional Facility in lieu of $25,000 bail and will undergo a mental examination, police said.

From the sketch, he must have trouble getting a normal date.

Is this sort of thing frowned upon in New Jersey ?

I find his behavior inappropriate.

Behavior is inappropriate but you have to give the guy credit for being able to be that aroused in public.
