Man Arrested For Openly Masturbating In Middle Of Oklahoma Walmart

A Tulsa, Oklahoma, resident was arrested Saturday, June 14, for masturbating right in the middle of a busy Walmart, according to reports.

KTUL-TV reports that the alleged pleasure session occurred at the Walmart located at 2019 East 81st Street around 12:45 p.m. Saturday and Walmart can prove it.

“Security footage at Walmart revealed the suspect, Derek Bennett, engaging in masturbation in the store, according to a police report.”

The New York Daily News reports that customers were the first to notice that Bennett was masturbating in the middle of the Walmart and called for help.

“Derek Bennett allegedly started stroking his exposed genitals as he strolled around the store in Tulsa on Saturday afternoon.

“Shocked shoppers called security guards — who caught the 26-year-old’s sleazy antics on surveillance camera.

“On finishing up, Bennett left the store and started driving away.”

According to a Tulsa World report, Bennett did not get far before police caught up with him.

The paper reports that Bennett’s gray Hyundai was driving north on Lewis Avenue when it was spotted by law enforcement and pulled over in the 7200 block of South Lewis. The paper reports that two witnesses to the alleged public masturbation were taken to the site of the traffic stop and identified Bennett as the person they saw pleasuring himself in the middle of Walmart.

Media reports indicate that Bennett admitted to police that he was pleasuring himself in the store, “but thought no one saw him,” the World reported.

As weird and unsettling as masturbating in the middle of Walmart is, imagine if you found out a teacher at your child’s school was arrested for masturbating in the hallway.

That’s exactly what happened at a school in Connecticut, where a substitute teacher was arrested for public indecency, second-degree breach of peace, and risk of injury to a minor after he was caught by a colleague, The Inquisitr reported.

“The suspect, identified in multiple media accounts as Michael Luecke, age 72, was allegedly caught in the act by a teaching assistant.”

A school staff member who was walking in an area of lockers just after 7:33 a.m. saw a man on the ground and approached him because she thought he was hurt. Instead, she found a substitute teacher with his hand in his pants and ‘manipulating his penis,’ according to police. She yelled at him and notified school officials, who quickly notified Westhill High School Resource Officers.’

“The principal called police and gave them surveillance video of the incident.”

Back in Oklahoma, Bennett is facing two counts of indecent exposure for his alleged public pleasuring session.
