BEAVERTON, OR (KPTV) -

Beaverton police were called out to the parking lot of a library Sunday after a witness reported seeing a man masturbating in his car.

Officers got the call at 5 p.m. and responded to the Beaverton City Library, 12375 S.W. 5th St. They found the suspect, Robert Leatherman, 26, of Clackamas, in his car.

Police said Leatherman initially denied that he had been masturbating, and said he was reclined in his car seat to shave.

As the conversation continued, police said Leatherman admitted to loading up pornography on his cell phone and inappropriately touched himself.

Leatherman told police that he had been at a friend's house watching football and stopped by the library to return some books.

"Once at the library, Leatherman said he had an erection and did not want to get out of his car while he was in that condition," Beaverton police said.

Leatherman assured officers it was the first time he had done something like this and promised it would never happen again.

He was arrested on the charge of public indecency and booked in the Washington County Jail. Police said he does not have any past criminal history.
