Albany man faces charges after he allegedly conducts lewd act on New Scotland Avenue

ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – An Albany man accused of performing a lewd act on New Scotland Avenue faces several charges.

Officers responded Sunday to a home on the 300 block of New Scotland Avenue after a report of a man exposing himself. When they arrived, two female victims, ages 24 and 14, told officers they looked out their window and saw a man inside an adjacent apartment building masturbating and looking at them.

Following an investigation, 58-year old Robert Chowenhill was arrested and charged with endangering the welfare of a child and public lewdness.

This isn’t his first arrest for public lewdness. In 1998, authorities say he exposed himself while on the 600 block of Warren Street and masturbated towards the window of an occupied window, knowing that those inside could see him. He was charged and convicted in Albany County Court in that case.

He was arraigned and remanded to Albany County Jail on these new charges.
