Police: Wallingford man charged with public indecency in bus stop incident


WALLINGFORD — A local man faces charges after police say he was caught on video exposing himself while children waited at a nearby bus stop.

Edward Buijnarowski, 72, of 1126 Yale Ave., was charged Sept. 27 with public indecency, second-degree breach of peace and two counts of risk of injury to a minor. He posted $2,500 bond and is scheduled to appear in Meriden Superior Court on Wednesday. He was told by police to remain inside while children are waiting for the bus, and to not have contact with children at the bus stop, according to Lt. Cheryl Bradley. Any further restrictions would have to be put in place by the court during his arraignment Wednesday, she said.

On Sept. 26, the father of an 11-year-old girl reported that Buijnarowski had been acting suspiciously near a bus stop for weeks. The father told police Buijnarowski stood outside on several occasions, either behind a tarp or an open car door, and appeared to be masturbating while watching children at the bus stop, said Lt. Cheryl Bradley.

On Sept. 27, the father obtained video showing Buijnarowski masturbating while standing outside of his home in plain view of two children, ages 11 and 12, at the bus stop, according to Bradley.

“On this occasion, he made no attempt to conceal the activity,” Bradley said.

Police reviewed the video and spoke with Buijnarowski. He told police he has masturbated himself while watching kids outside two or three times, Bradley said.
