A repeat public indecency offender with a “fascination for plastic” was behind bars in Ohio in the US today after allegedly having sex with a neighbour’s pink, inflatable pool raft.
Edwin Charles Tobergta, 32, was arrested on Sunday at his home in Hamilton, Ohio…a city north of Cincinnati…after the raft’s dismayed owner caught him in the act.
The owner apparently shouted at Tobergta, who then ran off with the pool float.
When cops took Tobergta into custody, he begged officers not to send him to prison and told them “he was doing it but only because he has a problem and that he needs help,” the police report said.
Tobergta has been arrested at least five times for similar offences and his grandmother tearfully said that the family has tried to seek mental care for him.
“He has a lot of mental problems and he’s always had a fascination for plastic,” she said. “That’s just it. That’s all of it. We never could get the proper care for Edwin. It’s like nobody cares.”
