Wellington, FL (January 16, 2019) – Police say that a man who was accused of looking through a girl’s window while masturbating was arrested after being beaten up by the girl’s father.

On Monday, 48-year-old Geoffrey Cassidy was arrested for the lewd and lascivious exhibition. The girl’s father found Cassidy crouched down by her bedroom window in the bushes, with his hands in his pants. Cassidy tried to run away. The girl’s father, a former NFL defensive back Tony Beckham, chased after Cassidy and threw him to the ground.

Beckham’s wife came outside and called 911. A deputy arrived and found the two fighting. Cassidy tried to run away when they got there, but they were able to restrain him and placed him in handcuffs at the scene.

The girl spoke with deputies and told them that she had just gotten out of the shower and was getting dressed when she saw Cassidy in the window.

Cassidy had to be first taken to the hospital to be treated for facial fractures. He then denied the incident when he was speaking with police, saying that he was only in the neighborhood because his vehicle broke down.
