Men caught masturbating in East Memphis neighborhood

Allison O'Keefe is home from college with quite a story to tell when she returns.

"His pants were completely down and he exposed himself," says O'Keefe.

She's talking about an indecent encounter she had while she sat in her family's den and a man stood in the back-yard.

"And he pointed at me and told me to come here and I just quickly called the police," she recalls.

She tells Action News 5 she first saw the man around two o'clock one afternoon walking through the Barfield Place Condos.

"And I said hello," says O'Keefe.

She heard a knock at the sliding glass door a couple of hours later.  She then saw the man in all his glory.

"I was more mad than scared just because he came in my back-yard and did that," says O'Keefe.

Memphis Police say they responded to a similar call in the same complex early in the morning on July 4th.                    

Like O'Keefe, the other victim says she saw a naked man in her window inappropriately touching himself.  The woman told police she's had a difficult time sleeping since then.

"Not something you want to see in your neighborhood," says Jessie Wortham.

It's a neighborhood she lives in too.

"It's always been a nice area to live in, so to hear that is kind of frightening," says Wortham.

It is possible the two cases are connected.  However, both women described different looking men.  One thing is certain.  It's something O'Keefe says she never wants to see again.

"God no -- in my lifetime," she says.

Police say perverts can often be violent.  They say you should always make sure your doors and windows are locked.
