Police have arrested a 28-year-old man after they say an employee at the Comfort Inn in Watford City saw him masturbating while watching pornography on a public computer in the hotel’s lobby.

Wilmi Sanchez was charged Wednesday, Feb. 27, with indecent exposure, a class A misdemeanor.

Staff had told Sanchez to leave the hotel on Feb. 9 because of his odd behavior, according to an affidavit of probable cause filed in Northwest District Court.

The next morning, an employee saw Sanchez using the public computer in the lobby to watch porn and saw him masturbate, court documents indicate. When a police officer confronted Sanchez later that day, he said he hadn’t been doing anything in the lobby.

Sanchez has a bond hearing scheduled for Friday, March 1.
