GLENS FALLS - An 80-year old man is facing charges after a complaint of public lewdness. Police arrested Donald Winne, of Glens Falls, Tuesday night after a teenage girl allegedly saw him on a bike path with his hand down his pants.  

Police say the incident happened as the young girl passed him on the bike path near Baldwin Avenue.  The girl says Winne was engaging in acts of masturbation.  A short time after Winne was taken into custody and charged with one count of endangering the welfare of a child.

Authorities think there could be more victims who have witnessed him doing this before.

Police are asking anyone with information to call the Glens Falls Police Department.
