OKLAHOMA CITY - An Oklahoma City man is facing three counts of Lewd Acts to a Child after being caught fondling himself near a play area at a fast food restaurant on the south side of the metro over the weekend.

According to a report, officers were called out to the McDonald's restaurant located in the 4500 block of SE 29th St. around 5:30 p.m. on Saturday. Witnesses reported that a man was sitting in a booth near the play area, looking at a laptop computer and watching children play while he masturbated.

The witnesses told police that when the suspect, now identified as 36-year-old Casey Ferguson, saw a police car pull into the parking lot he quickly packed up his things and fled. The officers made a quick search in the vicinity of the McDonald's when they located a man matching the suspect's description.

When police made contact with Ferguson they noted that the zipper was down on his pants, he was not wearing any underwear and was carrying a laptop.

Several witnesses, some even young children and teenagers, also reported seeing Ferguson rubbing and squeezing his genitals through his pants as he watched children in the play area.

Ferguson was booked into the Oklahoma County Jail for the counts of Lewd Acts to a Child. His bond was set at $45,000.
