SALEM — Authorities in New Hampshire took one man into custody after witnesses say he exposed his genitals while watching children play at the town park Sunday.
According to police, Arthur Proulx, 77 of Salem, was sitting in his vehicle at Hedgehog Park with his pants undone exposing his penis while facing the swimming pond and park grounds.
Once police arrived, Proulx allegedly began speaking loudly, repeatedly telling officers that "he had done nothing wrong and that he was just watching the children."
Authorities took Proulx into custody and transported him to the Salem Police Department where he was later released on $1,500 personal recognizance bail.
Proulx faces one count of gross lewdness in presence of a child under the age of 16. He is scheduled to be arraigned on Sept. 25 in the 10th Circuit Court District Division – Salem.
