WEST HARTFORD — A Hartford man has been charged with public indecency
and breach of peace after police say he was masturbating on a CT
Transit bus in West Hartford and exposed himself to a woman.
the woman moved to the front of the bus to get away from Robert Jamell
Roundtree, he followed her, police said. And when she got off the bus at
Westfarms mall, he followed her into the mall, exposing himself as he
followed, police said.
Inside the mall, she went into a restaurant and called police, police said. Roundtree went into a bathroom.
"We found him in the front of
the mall, and he was still exposing himself at that time," said Lt. Ted
Stoneburner. Roundtree is on federal probation for drug offenses.
Roundtree was initially held on $10,000 bail for the incident, which
was reported at 1 p.m. Dec. 2, but was later released after his bail was
reduced and he posted $5,000 bail with a bondsman.
His case is being handled in community court in Hartford, where he is scheduled to appear Dec. 23.
