A man who apparently works for a business located in Harry Reid International Airport was arrested last weekend for allegedly performing a lewd act in an airport restroom. The same suspect previously was arrested on a similar charge, police said.
On December 19, the suspect, later identified as Lazarique Hampton, was lying on the floor in a D Gate stall, engaging in a sex act, police said. At the time, he was aiming his cell phone camera at the man in the neighboring stall, police added.
When the man noticed Hampton, the victim yelled out at him, “What are you doing?”
Hampton dropped his cell phone, keys, and his ID card on the restroom floor. He fled.
The victim quickly went to airport officials to alert them about the incident. While speaking to them, he once again saw Hampton, police said.
The victim’s girlfriend took out her phone and videotaped Hampton as he walked in the airport, police added.
The video was given to authorities and later viewed by Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD) officers. They also noticed his airport ID badge. Hampton was identified by police as the suspect.
He was charged with open and gross lewdness, as well as peering or spying through an opening of a dwelling with a camera, according to KLAS, a local TV station.
He was arrested at the airport last Saturday. Hampton works for a tenant in the airport, not the Clark County Department of Aviation, which operates the airport, KLAS added, citing information from an airport spokesperson.
He was released from custody after posting bond. He is scheduled to appear in local court next month.
The LVMPD arrest report in the recent case revealed that Hampton was also arrested for open and gross lewdness in 2019.
“Hampton was on the bathroom floor masturbating while looking up into the stall the victim was using,” the arrest report said on the earlier charge.
That case was dismissed after a year’s time, police said.
A year ago, elsewhere in Las Vegas, a man who allegedly groped a woman at the Palazzo Las Vegas in The Venetian Resort was arrested. He was identified as Alberto Baez-Mesinas, 39, and was charged with open and gross lewdness, KLAS said.
The incident took place on last year’s Super Bowl Sunday (February 13).
The victim, Ariel Lyndsey, a social media celebrity, immediately confronted him and slapped him in the face, a video posted on social media showed. She cursed at him and asked him for an apology.
Baez-Mesinas told police he put his hand up Lyndsey’s skirt as she walked by, the report said. He also groped her buttocks, KLAS said, based on a police report.
It is not immediately known how the case against him was adjudicated in local court.
