Florida Keys Man Performed Lewd Act in Front of Elderly Woman: Deputies

The incident took place on July 21, authorities said

A Florida Keys man was arrested for performing a lewd act in the presence of an elderly woman, the Monroe County Sheriff's Office said Thursday.

The woman, 65, was paying 51-year-old Roy Drebenstedt to help fix her yard at her home in Islamorade, the sheriff's office said. On July 21, he asked to use her bathroom and was in there a long time, authorities said.

He came out naked and asked her for a towel because he said he had taken a shower and was fondling himself, authorities said. She threw some towels at him and locked herself in her bedroom for an hour. When she came out he was gone.

He was arrested on Thursday and charged with lewd and lascivious exhibition in the presence of an elderly person.

It wasn't immediately known if he had an attorney.
