Police: Ohio man found ‘acting like gorilla,’ touching self inappropriately

WARREN, OH (WKBN) – Police arrested a man who was “acting like gorilla” and touching himself inappropriately at  Giant Eagle Plaza in Warren, Ohio.

Officers were called to the scene on reports of two white males who were running around the lot and taking off their clothes.

Timothy Cook, 32, of Leavittsburg entered the nearby License Bureau, waved his arms around, exited the business and began masturbating on the sidewalk, according to the police report. The License Bureau then locked its doors due to safety concerns.

By the time officers arrived, they said they found Cook sweating profusely in the parking lot, acting like a “gorilla” by squatting on all fours, punching the blacktop, jumping up and down, screaming non-coherently and growling.

Another officer arrived to help detain Cook, who did not resist arrest. They called for an ambulance due to his erratic behavior and according to the police report, the ambulance administered Narcan to Cook for an apparent overdose. He was then taken to Trumbull Memorial Hospital.

Officers found that Cook has an outstanding warrant for drug possession, but due to manpower shortages the warrant is still active, according to the report.

An officer detained the other man, Osmond LeMasters, 24, of Warren, who was found walking south on Mahoning Ave. in Warren, south of the entrance to the plaza. He was later released from the scene and is due in court on Tuesday at 9 a.m.

Both men were charged with disorderly conduct while intoxicated.
