Cops: Man charged with exposing himself at Keystone State Park in Derry Township
An Allegheny County man was charged with indecent exposure, open lewdness and public drunkenness by state police after allegedly fondling himself and peering at people inside a bathroom Saturday at the Keystone State Park beach in Derry Township.
James A. Coffman, 43, of Wall, was arraigned Saturday on the multiple charges filed by state police in Greensburg after the father of a 7-year-old boy using the park complained he twice noticed Coffman offending beach patrons when they used the bathroom between 6:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.
The man told Trooper Daniel Popinick he had to shield his young son’s eyes as the child used the bathroom.
About an hour later, the man said he and his son went back to change and observed Coffman “attempting to look through the curtain” at the pair as they showered. The adult victim also reported that Coffman was fondling himself.
Popinick also charged with unlawful contact with a minor and driving on a suspended license.
Popinick reported in court documents that Coffman smelled of alcoholic beverages and was slurring his words when he was interviewed by troopers.
He was released on recognizance bond pending a preliminary hearing July 11 before Derry District Judge Mark Bilik.
