TORONTO — Toronto Police have charged a man with committing an "indecent act" involving a cucumber at library.

Officers received a call around 11 a.m. Saturday for a suspicious incident at Agincourt Library in the city’s Scarborough area.

They found a man holding a cucumber in one hand, while allegedly performing the same lewd act that library staff recognized from an incident in April.

"On April 7, he sits down and a (26-year-old woman) sits next to him and he opens up his laptop," Const. David Hopkinson said Wednesday.


Fredrick Tennyson Davis, 49, of Toronto, is charged with an indecent act involving a cucumber at Agincourt Library in Scarborough.

The man then started masturbating with one hand while holding a cucumber with his other hand, the officer alleged.

Fredrick Tennyson Davis, 49, has been charged with an indecent act and two counts of fail to comply probation.

York Regional Police Const. Andy Pattenden also confirmed Davis was charged with mischief and an indecent act in a similar June 26, 2012, incident at a Markham, Ont., library.

He received a suspended sentence and 12 months probation for the indecent act charge and a stay of proceedings for the mischief charge.

When asked if Davis appeared threatening to the library staff or patrons, Hopkinson said he wasn't sure if there was any threat.

"I don't think he had any free hands to make any threat," the officer said.
