News 12 Long Island
A Queens man is accused of exposing himself to a teen lifeguard at a public pool in Wantagh.
The incident happened around 4:30 p.m. Sunday at the Forest City Park pool. According to courtpapers, 33-year-old Wilson Kenney sat on a bench near a 17-year-old lifeguard by the kids' pool andbegan acting in a very sexual manor, rubbing his legs and groin area.
The lifeguard says Kenney then unzipped his shorts and exposed himself.
People who frequent the pool say they saw Kenney there regularly last summer. Some say he stuckout because he wore a full face of makeup, had his nails done and didn't have any children withhim.
Kenney was arraigned Monday and released to probation so he could undergo an immediatepsychiatric evaluation. He also signed an order of protection to stay away from the lifeguard.
Kenney has no prior criminal history, News 12 is told.
