Lid Placed on Alleged X-rated Showman

(La Porte, IN) - A La Porte man was arrested for allegedly putting on a Peep show.  40-year old Robert Pratt, Jr. is charged with indecent exposure following his arrest Wednesday evening at 905 Linwood Avenue.


According to police, a 65-year old woman across the street saw the man inside the home

Tuesday evening.  He was allegedly standing naked at an uncovered window fondling himself.  Police said the same woman the next evening saw the man at the uncovered window engaged in the same type of lewd conduct.


Police said officers went inside the home and found Pratt laying underneath a bathtub.  According to police, despite wearing handcuffs, Pratt was not discouraged from watching pornography on his phone from the back seat of a squad car while being transported to the La Porte County Jail.


Pratt is also being held on outstanding warrants for indecent exposure and dealing drugs, police said.
