Richard Wuschke allegedly lay on the ground with his shorts around his ankles on one side of a path near the Rexhame Beach Parking Lot, police said in a news release. Police said that families and children often use the path.

Police were called to the scene around 5 p.m. The area was busy at the time, and police said several witnesses told them they were shocked and alarmed to see Wuschke next to the South River bank with his genitals exposed.  


In May 2022, Marshfield police charged Wuschke with indecent exposure and disorderly conduct after a similar incident near the town library. During this incident, they said, he was seen wearing only a t-shirt and socks in front of a local business.

Police charged Wuschke with open and gross lewdness and disorderly conduct in connection with the Saturday incident. He was arraigned in Plymouth District Court on Monday and released on bail.
