YORKTOWN — A man arrested for allegedly masturbating at his mailbox Tuesday afternoon told police he was showing his neighbors “who was boss,” 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, Doster’s behavior took place while a 19-month old neighbor boy was playing in his yard with his mother.
Tuesday was Doster’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.
“Once I read him his rights, Daniel admitted to me that he was standing at the mailbox masturbating to show his neighbors who was boss,” 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 “Vicarious Sexual Gratification?”
