Officials announced that a Brooklyn cop was charged after exposing himself and masturbating in front of 5 female officers on multiple occasions while on duty.
Officer Anthony Avosso, 31, with the 60th NYPD Precinct in Coney Island, was arrested and charged with 7 counts of public lewdness and 4 counts of exposure, reported The NY Post.
Avosso, who is married with 3 kids, was released without bail after he plead not guilty to the crimes at his arraignment.
He was suspended last month after exposing himself to a female officer for the 3rd time.
When that victim filed a complaint on Feb. 16 with her Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association delegate, 4 other women came forward with similar allegations.
Avosso committed his perverted deeds between October 2016 and February 2018.
The Post reported on one of the inappropriate instances:
Avosso’s female partner noticed that the zipper of his pants was down in a patrol car after they had taken a suspect to the precinct.
“The defendant begins grunting and begins masturbating while the partner is sitting in the front,” Assistant District Attorney Adriana Rodriguez said in court.
“Don’t you think it’s weird that I am playing with myself?” Avosso asked his partner, according to Rodriguez.
Avosso also exposed himself on a southbound F train to a female police officer sitting next to him on the way back to the precinct from the Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office, according to officials.
“The defendant had his penis sticking out of an open fly of his pants,” Rodriguez said.
He was also charged for exposing himself to a probationary officer fresh out of the academy as he was asking her about her future goals in the department.
Another instance was inside the 60th Precinct stationhouse while he and a female officer were in a room alone. He also flashed her a second time while the two of them were in a police cruiser together.
Rodriguez said that Avosso even exposed himself while eating lunch with another officer at Wendy’s.
“It was an intimidating tactic because it was a male-dominant precinct,” said Rodriguez.
Prosecutors requested a bail of $7,500, but the judge released him without bail because he was not seen as a flight risk.
