---- — PLATTSBURGH — A 24-year-old Mooers man was charged with public lewdness Friday after he allegedly masturbated while following a woman in his car.

The woman called 911 at about noon Friday to report the alleged crime, Plattsburgh City Police said in a news release.

She told authorities the man was driving a blue Pontiac Sunfire, and officers responded to the place of the incident, locating the vehicle a short time later, police said.

Roger Gregory Jr. was arrested after an interview with officers, City Police said, and charged with public lewdness, a misdemeanor.

City Police detectives are interviewing other witnesses who may have seen similar conduct in the past several weeks, the release said.

“We are interested in speaking with anyone who may have information,” police said in the release.

Reach the Plattsburgh City Police Department at 563-3411.
