WICHITA - Police say a convicted sex offender was arrested Wednesday night, after allegedly fondling himself while watching kids swim in a pool.
It happened Wednesday evening; KAKE News reports it happened at the pool inside the downtown YMCA at 402 N. Market. Numerous children were swimming in the pool when two of them saw a man watching them and acting strangely. The eight- and nine-year-old girls told other adults, who called police.
Officers responded, arresting a 39-year-old man. Police say he's a registered sex offender, convicted in 2005 of a misdemeanor sex crime against a three-year-old girl in California. He was convicted last year in Sedgwick County of failing to register as a sex offender, and is currently in community corrections. The suspect is in custody at the Sedgwick County Jail.
