According to a shocking New York Post report, a home inspector from Michigan ended up getting arrested after camera footage showed him pleasuring himself to a doll of popular Sesame Street character Elmo.
The 59-year-old home inspector, Kevin Wayne VanLuven, apparently did the act on the 22nd of March, after a 22-year-old woman had him inspecting her place in Oxford Township, Michigan.
When she saw the man touching himself with the Elmo doll, she decided to record him through the nanny cam which had a connection with her phone. The man was recorded, as he looked at the closet and allegedly pleasured himself.
After the sheriff’s deputies visited the scene and questioned him, he said that he was merely moving the doll around to find an “electric outlet.” After being informed that he was caught on camera committing the act, he made some incriminating statements”, after which he went on to apologize.
In a statement to Detriot’s Fox analogue, the sheriff’s statement suggested he was really shocked.
I mean, it’s just—wow. While he was in there, he took the opportunity to be in a baby’s nursery. And worse, while he’s in there—for whatever sick reason—finds himself in need of sexually gratifying himself with a Tickle Me Elmo doll.
VanLuven is behind bars in the Oakland County jail, with the charges against him being aggravated indecent exposure and malicious destruction of property. A judge also ordered that he gets examined for mental health related issues. He is looking up to two years in jail.
