Police: Chicago Man Kicked Out of Orland Park Pool for Touching Himself
Several people said they saw the man fondling himself while in different areas of Centennial Pool, including the locker room and public spots.
A Chicago man was banned for life from the Centennial Park pool in Orland Park after multiple people reported that he was touching himself inappropriately while in public areas, according to an Orland Park police report.
Jorge L. Martinez, 42, of the 4500 block of West 55th Street in Chicago, was charged with disorderly conduct.
Police were called to the Centennial Park Aquatic Center around 6 p.m. about a man seen by pool staff and patrons with his hand down his shorts at various places around the pool, including the locker room and an outdoor pavilion, police said.
At one point, he placed a backpack on his lap that concealed what he may have been doing, according to the report. Though pool staff and patrons later said they could see he was touching himself under his shorts, police said.
After talking with the responding officer about the accusations against him for several minutes, “Jorge did not seem to want to speak anymore,” according to the report.
Martinez was banned for life from the Orland Park pool.
He is scheduled to be in court next on Aug. 6.
