LARGO, Fla. (WFLA) – A Largo man accused of masturbating in front of children told police he was adjusting his hernia, authorities said. 

Gary Kyle Singer, 30 was arrested Wednesday and booked into the Pinellas County Jail, according to an affidavit. 

Largo police said a group of kids under the age of 16 were walking home from school in an undisclosed location when they noticed Singer looking directly at them as he stood against a window and masturbated. This continued until the victims screamed and ran away, the affidavit states.

When questioned by police, Singer denied masturbating and said he was adjusting his hernia while pulling up his pants.

Police said Singer has a previous history of lewd and lascivious exposure of sexual organs. He also has previous arrests for aggravated battery, criminal mischief and driving while license suspended or revoked, according to online jail records.

Singer was arrested Wednesday on four counts of lewd and lascivious exhibition and one count of probation violation for an aggravated battery charge.

Online jail records show his bond was set to $80,000.
