WESTFIELD, Mass. (The Westfield News) – An uninvited visitor to a Cross Street apartment was arrested after he pushed the tenants outside and urinated from a second floor window while calling attention to his genitalia early Saturday morning.

Officer Matthew Preuss reports that he responded to a 2:10 a.m. call from a resident who said that a friend of his entered his home uninvited and while apparently under the influence of an unknown substance.

The caller said that he had never seen the man, Randy David Patterson, 21 of 284 Long Hill Road, Bolton, in the condition he was in and said he called police because he was beginning to become violent.

He said that he had asked to man to leave but was unable to effectively insist because Patterson is bigger than he is. “The renters stated that since Patterson is a large and muscular guy, he was able to force them out of the apartment,” Preuss reported. “They stated that they feared he would do harm if they tried to force him out.”

Court records indicated that Patterson is a heavyset man, 6-feet-3-inches tall, weighing 230 pounds.

The complainant said he was calling from outside his home.

Preuss reports that when he arrived the suspect was seen at a second floor window when he started yelling and he and several others saw the man remove his genitalia from his shorts and begin to urinate out the window while yelling and calling attention to his usually private parts.

When Preuss and Officer David Burl entered the apartment they found Patterson lying on his back but he refused instruction to roll over and actively resisted their efforts to emplace handcuffs.

Patterson was arrested for disorderly conduct, indecent exposure, resisting arrest and trespass.

He was released from police custody on his personal recognizance later Saturday morning and appeared in Westfield District Court Monday before Judge Philip A. Contant.

Patterson submitted to facts sufficient to warrant guilty findings on all four charges and was placed on probation for one year. He was assessed $50.
