STAMFORD , Conn., Feb. 27 (UPI) -- An elderly substitute teacher was arrested at Westhill High School in Stamford, Conn., on Wednesday after one of his colleagues allegedly discovered him masturbating in a school hallway around 7:30 a.m.

A female paraprofessional educator stumbled upon Michael Luecke on the ground and went to assist him. Upon closer inspection, she observed the 72-year-old with his hand "in his pants manipulating his penis.”

After she alerted school officials about his behavior, Luecke was detained by school resource officers. He was later arrested and charged with public indecency, second-degree breach of peace and risk of injury to a minor.


"Video surveillance was found showing Luecke…in a corner of a stairwell in the Rayner building suspiciously manipulating the front of his pants while looking at students in the courtyard," police told the Norwalk Daily Voice.

The video shows six students walk by Luecke while he was masturbating. According to police, they may need counseling.

Luecke apparently had an excuse for his actions.
