Cops: Man arrested for exposing himself blames pants

A Ridley Park man who was arrested for masturbating on his front porch must have been hard up for excuses when claimed he was just "having some problems with my pants," according to police.

Cops responded to calls of a man who was indecently exposed and masturbating on his porch on East Chester Pike at around 12:24 p.m. Tuesday, said Ridley Park Police Chief Tom Byrne.


The 44-year-old suspect, Leonard Worby, was arrested inside of his mother's apartment and was later identified by witnesses, according to police.

In interviews, Worby told investigators that he was "having some problems with my pants," according to Byrne.

He was arrested on indecent exposure and related charges.
