Real Life Somerville Police Stories:Fransisco PATINO (Lewd & Lascivious)

On January 16, 2016 at approx 12:20 PM I was dispatched to an Indecent Exposure call at Lowell St & Ibbetson St. Also dispatched were Officers Isaacs and K9 Officer Sullivan. The Victim/Reporting Person, XXXXX, described the suspect as a white or Hispanic fair skinned male wearing blue flannel pajama pants, black jacket and black soccer shoes exposing himself outside.


As I was enroute and turning onto Craigie Street Officers Isaacs called over the radio stating that the suspect just took off running from Kimball Street through Dickerman Park onto Craigie Street towards Summer Street. As I continued down Craigie I observed a white male matching the description running towards me. The suspect had his hands in his jacket pockets. I exited my vehicle, drew my service weapon and ordered the suspect to remove his hands from his jacket and get onto the ground. The suspect, identified as Francisco Patino at booking, immediately removed his hands from his jacket and got onto the ground. Officer Isaacs then placed handcuffs on Mr Patino.


The victim, XXXXX was standing approx 20 feet away and confirmed that this was the suspect he observed masturbating in front of Lowell St & Ibbetson St. I asked XXXXX what had transpired and he stated that his wife, YYYYY was looking out their window. She observed Mr Patino outside, standing with his back towards her, and thought he may have been urinating. Mr. Patino then turned around and she noticed his pants were halfway down and he was masturbating with an erect penis. She was so alarmed and shocked by what she was seeing that she called her husband over to the window to confirm Mr. Patino’s actions.


XXXXX went on to state that he went to the window when his wife called him over and also observed Patino rubbing his erect penis. XXXXX stated that he then called the Police and continued watching Patino from the window. 


Mr Patino was placed under arrest and transported to the station by Unit 200 and booked by Lt. Mulcahy for the above noted charge. 2 pictures were taken of Patino’s pajama pants, jacket and soccer sneakers he was wearing and added to this report.


Respectfully Submitted,


Officer Alan Monaco #234
