YORKTOWN â€” A man arrested for allegedly masturbating at his mailbox Tuesday afternoon told police he was showing his neighbors â€œwho was boss,â€ according to police reports.
Daniel T. Doster Jr., 42, 8501 W. Pleasant Road, faces preliminary charges of vicarious sexual gratification, a class D felony carrying a maximum three-year prison term.
According to witness accounts, Dosterâ€™s behavior took place while a 19-month old neighbor boy was playing in his yard with his mother.
Tuesday was Dosterâ€™s second arrest since Jan. 20 on allegations that he was masturbating by his mailbox. Doter is facing a charge of public indecency in Muncie City Court in connection with the Jan. 20 arrest.
Yorktown officer Mike Daugherty arrested Doster around 4:30 p.m.
â€œOnce I read him his rights, Daniel admitted to me that he was standing at the mailbox masturbating to show his neighbors who was boss,â€ Daugherty wrote in the probable cause affdavit.
By the way, if there are any bands out there looking for a really cool name, may I suggest â€œVicarious Sexual Gratification?â€
