A 54-year-old Plato man has been charged with multiple counts of indecent exposure and lewd behavior with children after allegedly wearing a skimpy swimsuit in a pool at a Mankato hotel.
Authorities were called to the Mankato Days Inn last weekend after guests at the hotel complained about the lewd behavior of Gerald Lee Senske. Several guests told police Senske was in the pool area wearing a Speedo-style swimsuit and was acting lewd around children. He also allegedly exposed himself while in the hot tub and was asking odd questions.
Other guests reported Senske had followed them out of the pool area and walked past their room. He also reportedly followed a group of kids around the hotel, and then returned to the pool area wearing an even smaller thong bikini that only covered his genitals.
He was arrested at his residence in Plato the next morning and bail was set at $40,000. He’s also facing felony stalking charges.
Senske also has a previous conviction for indecent exposure.
