Man charged for indecent exposure at University of Delaware

- A man has been arrested following alleged instances of indecent exposure at the University of Delaware.

Police say Gerald Picerno was charged Friday with two counts of lewdness, two counts of indecent exposure and one count of third-degree trespassing.

The suspect was released on a $2,250 unsecured bond and was ordered to have no contact with the University of Delaware, the City of Newark and the victims.

Reports of the suspect's indecent exposure were made Sunday in the area of the Center for the Arts on Orchard Street.

An alert went out to students.

"It just said there was a guy walking around on campus wearing nothing but a jock strap and a hat,” said Samantha Cuomo. A flesh tone jock strap and a blue hat is what the alert stated the man was wearing.

"It’s always something to be on the lookout for," said Rachel Royer.

Matt Lynn says he was with friends when he heard about the incident.

"We were all kind of sketched out about the area. We went over to check it out actually to see if anyone was over by there but we couldn't see anything," he said.

Some students say it's just a reminder to always take precautions.

"We always travel in groups. We never travel alone because you never know what's going to happen," said Cuomo.
