INITIAL REPORT:

A man with at least four previous arrests for public indecency was indicted today after police said he was caught performing a sex act on himself in the maternity waiting area at Kettering Medical Center in front of children.

Joseph Jordan, 45, was arrested by Kettering police at the hospital after two employees at the hospital witnessed him performing the sex act on Sept. 15, according to a statement of facts.

“Also present in the waiting room were other visitors and their children,” the statement read.

Jordan was indicted on charges of public indecency and criminal trespassing Monday, according to court records.

Jordan had previously been trespassed from the hospital property and in January 2016 he was convicted of performing a sex act on himself in the main lobby of the hospital, police said.

In December 2014, Jordan was travelling with a Christmas caroling group in Centerville when he exposed himself to a woman in the group while they were driving to deliver Christmas cookies to members of a local church. He pleaded guilty to a public indecency charge in that case.

In 2016, Jordan was convicted after he was caught performing a sex act on himself in the cafe area of Dorothy Lane Market on Far Hills Avenue in Oakwood.  He also has a previous conviction in Xenia on the same charge, according to court records.
