The victim told police he was washing ink off of his hands in a first floor restroom about 5:20 p.m. when he looked into a mirror and noticed a man staring at him.

When the victim turned around, he told police that he saw the man "jacking off." The man continued to masturbate for about 10 minutes until he ejaculated on the floor.

The victim told police he did not feel threatened by the suspect who appeared to be masturbating for his benefit.
