LUCIO TOMAR, 38, of Boston, was charged with one count of open and gross lewdness in Dorchester BMC. Judge Erika Reis set bail at $2,500 cash. Tomar is due back in court on November 10 for a pre-trial hearing.
At about 11:27 a.m. on October 6, Boston police responded to a lewd activity call on Clayton Street. Officers spoke with a witness who said he received a call from his mother who was waiting for an Uber outside indicating that she “needed help” and that “it was an emergency.”
The witness observed a dark colored BMW with the windows down parked directly in front of his mother. A man, later identified as Tomar, was in the vehicle with his pants down and genitals fully exposed, touching himself. The witness smashed the passenger side top corner of the vehicle with a hammer, causing the windshield to shatter. Tomar quickly fled the area after.
The victim later told police she was “disgusted and mad” and afraid for herself and the young children that lived nearby.
On October 9, Boston police received another call for a male “pleasuring himself” in the area of Crescent Avenue. The male was described as wearing a black hooded sweatshirt. Officers familiar with Tomar and similar incidents happening in that area were advised that Tomar may be operating a dark colored BMW with dealer plates. Shortly after, officers stopped Tomar at the corner of Dorchester and Crescent Avenue driving the same vehicle with a shattered windshield and wearing a black hooded sweatshirt.
Tomar is a registered sex offender and has an open lewd and lascivious case in Roxbury BMC. Tomar has served House of Corrections sentences on two open and gross convictions.
Tomar’s record includes 17 prior incidents involving 30 open and gross, lewd and lascivious or indecent exposure charges, as well as offenses for larceny, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, malicious destruction of property, threats, disorderly conduct and failure to register as a sex offender. The incidents, which date back to 2006, span numerous district courts in Suffolk, Norfolk and Middlesex counties.
“While no one may have been physically hurt in this incident, that by no means diminishes the disturbing and lasting impact it had for the victim. This individual’s chronic lewd behavior has inflicted intolerable emotional trauma across many neighborhoods. His continued actions endanger the community and himself,” Hayden said.
