Cops: Lakewood Man Undressed, Masturbated in Deli

Lakewood man, 42, has been charged with lewdness, sexual assault

Lakewood police have brought lewdness and sexual assault charges against a man who witnesses said walked into a township deli, took off his clothes and began to masturbate.

Lakewood officers were called to the La Palma Deli and Grocery on Ocean Avenue at about 5:30 p.m. Saturday after a female employee called to report that a man – later identified as Rochard Savoy, 42 – entered the store, waited for customers to leave, and then  removed his clothes and began to masturbate in front of her and her eight year old son, who was present at the time, according to police.

"Upon realizing that she was contacting the police, the suspect quickly got dressed and fled the area on foot," police said in a statement.

Savoy was located a short time later by Officers Michael Young and Junior Vega at a nearby bus terminal and placed into custody.

An investigation, conducted by Ocean County Prosecutors Office Detectives LeRoy Marshall and Melissa Matthews, revealed that the same man had entered the same deli the night before, removed his clothes and masturbated until he was told to leave by an employee, according to the statement.

Savoy was charged with two counts of lewdness, tender years sexual assault and endangering the welfare of a child. Bail was set at $100,000 cash.

Savoy remains in the Ocean County Jail.

Tried to amend my carnivorous habits. Made it nearly seventy days, Losin' weight without speed, eatin' sunflower seeds, Drinkin' lots of carrot juice and soakin' up rays. But at night I'd have these wonderful dreams Some kind of sensuous treat. Not zucchini, fettuccini, or bulgur wheat, But a big warm bun and a huge hunk of meat. Cheeseburger is paradise. Heaven on earth with an onion slice. Not too particular, not too precise. I'm just a cheeseburger in paradise. I like mine with lettuce and tomato, Heinz Fifty-seven and French fried potatoes. Big kosher pickle and a cold draft beer. Well, good God Almighty, which way do I steer For my cheeseburger in paradise. Heard about the old time sailor men, They eat the same thing again and again; Warm beer and bread they say could raise the dead. Well, it reminds me of the menu at a Holiday Inn. But times have changed for sailors these days. When I'm in port I get what I need; Not just Havanas or banana or daiquiris, But that American creation on which I feed! Cheeseburger is paradise medium rare with mustard'd be nice Not too particular, not too precise I'm just a cheeseburger in paradise. I like mine with lettuce and tomato Heinz 57 and french fried potatoes Big kosher pickle and a cold draught beer Well, good god Almighty which way do I steer For a cheeseburger in paradise Makin' the best of every virtue and vice. Worth every damn bit of sacrifice To get a cheeseburger in paradise; To be a cheeseburger in paradise. I'm just a cheeseburger in paradise.
