Ocala, Florida — A grandmother quickly covered her granddaughter’s eyes after spotting a naked man in a window Thursday morning.

According to reports, the man, later identified as Henry James Burke, 49, was standing at the window facing the street while masturbating.
The grandmother said he was standing there staring at them as they walked by.
