A Palo Alto man arrested on suspicion of masturbating at window while making eye contact with female neighbors

PALO ALTO (KRON) — Police arrested a Silicon Valley man after neighbors reported him masturbating at his apartment window while trying to make eye contact with a woman and two female juveniles.

Scott Ford Bogart, 63, was taken into custody following two similar incidents at 33 Encina Ave. on Feb. 15 and Feb. 17, according to Palo Alto police.

Around 6:40 p.m. on Feb. 15, a 21-year-old woman and two teenage girls were on a second-floor balcony when they allegedly observed Bogart masturbating in the window of his fifth-floor apartment and flickering the lights on and off. Responding officers took a report that night but did not take him into custody.

At 6:43 p.m. on Feb. 17, another caller reported that Bogart was masturbating in the window while making eye contact with the victim and turning the lights off and on, according to police.

“He saw the suspect inside his fifth floor apartment, seated in a chair that was pulled up next to a picture window facing outward such that he was in full view of the courtyard and many apartments,” police said.

Once Bogart and the victim made eye contact, the suspect turned off the lights in his apartment, then flicked them on and off again, said investigators.

Officers took Bogart into custody Feb. 17 on suspicion of indecent exposure.
