Man arrested for attempting to have sex with van

DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Police arrested a man Tuesday night after a witness said they saw him trying to have sex with a parked van.

According to a police report, officers were called to the 700 block of St. Nicholas Street around 8:00 p.m. Tuesday on a report that a man was pulling his pants down and swinging on a stop sign.

When police arrived in the area they found a man walking in the 1900 block of Deadwood Street only wearing black gym shorts and shoes. The report says the man, later identified as Michael Henson, appeared to be intoxicated.

Officers put him in the back of a police car and spoke with the woman who called police. She told them she saw the man standing near a parked van at 805 St. Nicholas Street. She went on to explain she saw Henson pull his shorts down and place his genitals in the front grill of the van that was parked on the street.

The woman said he did this for a while then appeared to pass out in a nearby yard. That’s when she called police.

Henson was arrested for public indecency and is now in the Montgomery County jail.
