By The Mercury

A Junction City man was ticketed for allegedly touching himself outside of the Manhattan Public Library Tuesday afternoon.

The incident was reported by a 22-year-old woman who told police that Josiah Darby, 27, had been sitting on a park bench outside the library when she noticed that he was inappropriately touching himself, Officer Matthew Droge said.

Droge said officers made contact with the man at about 3:30 p.m. He was issued a notice to appear for lewd and lascivious behavior.
