Port St. Lucie man jailed after reported inappropriate 'yanking'

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- A 38-year-old man accused of "yanking on his member" by a neighbor got arrested after Port St. Lucie police also say he didn't follow orders to remove his hands from his pockets as officers spoke with him.

The 51-year-old neighbor told police March 6 he was in the back yard of his home in the 500 block of Southwest McComb Avenue when he saw a man "with dark pants and white shirt yanking on his member," a recently released Port St. Lucie police report states.

He said he looked again and the "yanking" continued. The 51-year-old neighbor said he screamed at the man, who went in his home.

"I asked (the 51-year-old neighbor) if he was disturbed by the male yanking," the report states. "He stated yes he was disturbed by the male due to his . . . (children) and wife possibly seeing the male."

Investigators spoke to a man in the 500 block of Southwest Feldman Avenue who matched the description given by the 51-year-old neighbor.

That man denied being on his back porch, saying he was inside and that the witness was lying.

As police investigated, the man kept putting his hands in his pants pockets.

"I advised the male twice to keep his hands out of his pockets," the report states.

Another officer gave similar instructions.

"The male stated, 'I can do what ever I want,' and placed his hands back into his pockets," the report states.

The report didn't specify what, if anything, the man accomplished with his hands in his pockets.

He declined to identify himself, but police determined his name was Salem Adili.

Adili, 38, of the 500 block of Southwest Feldman Avenue, was arrested on misdemeanor charges including obstruction without violence and disorderly conduct.
