Pennsville cop accused of shaking his penis at boys with a ‘creepy look on his face’
PENNSVILLE — A Carney's Point police officer accused of exposing himself to two boys at a local restaurant remains on the job and has a court date coming up.
According to Salem County Prosecutor John T. Lenahan, the incident happened at the Applebee's on North Broadway on March 29, NJ.com reports. Lenahan said the two boys tried to enter a stall Anthony Minguez was using, according to the report. Minguez then allegedly turned around.
"The victims allege that Officer Minguez shook his penis and had a creepy look on his face," Lenahan added, according to the report. The two boys ran from the bathroom, Lenahan reportedly said.
After the incident the mother of the boys filed complaints against Minguez for lewdness and disorderly conduct, the NJ.com story said. But according to the report, Lenahan also said his office will not seek charges against Minguez because the allegations do not rise to the level of an indictable crime."
A GoGetFunding page has been set up for his defense, and as of Monday night $3,375 had been raised.
"Anthony was falsely accused of a heinous crime while eating at a local restaurant," the page reads. "Anyone that knows Anthony and the Minguez family knows that he would not commit such an act as he is being accused of."
The case has been sent to the Pennsville municipal court. Minguez has a first court date of June 1.
