Wake County News

RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – A Raleigh man is facing charges after being accused of pleasuring himself at the Alexander Family YMCA on Hillsborough Street.

Brandon Stringfield, 26, was arrested Tuesday and is charged with indecent exposure.

According to an arrest warrant, on March 31 a member walked into the women’s steam room and discovered a naked man masturbating while another woman was asleep.

In a 911 call made on April 2, a YMCA employee tells the dispatcher they weren’t initially sure who the suspect was.

“This happened on Sunday and we were not able to identify the person until recently. As of now, we are not aware he’s in the area,” said the caller.

YMCA member called the incident disturbing and wanted to know it happened in the first place.

“There is someone outside the desk at the locker rooms. I would think that if a man walked into the women’s locker room, he would be noticed before he got all the way into the steam room. That’s kind of crazy,” said James Shepherd.

In a statement, the YMCA said member safety is a top concern and that it canceled the suspect’s membership.

“Our staff members continually monitor all spaces in our facility. After this incident, staff at the Alexander Family YMCA reviewed procedures and were reminded of the importance of constant vigilance,” the statement read.
