A 70-year-old man is in court on Long Island to face public lewdness charges.

Karl Wildermuth, from Uniondale, was arrested in the Hofstra University library Tuesday afternoon.

Public safety officers say Wildermuth sat behind a female student while touching himself.

Wildermuth was banned from the library more than a decade ago after he grabbed a young woman.

And in 2009, police said Wildermuth entered the college library and grabbed and squeezed a female victim on the buttocks.

Wildermuth is charged with two counts of Burglary 3rd Degree, Forcible Touching and Public Lewdness.
