PORTLAND, Maine — A Portland man who reportedly violated his probation for a late-night pizza run was arrested again Tuesday for indecent conduct, according to police.

Steven Ricci, 48, who is on probation for indecent conduct, was arrested Tuesday morning at his residence, Lt. Gary Rogers told the Bangor Daily News.

Police received a complaint Monday afternoon of indecent conduct on the Fore River Sanctuary Trail, the scene of Ricci’s original crime, according to Rogers.

The alleged witnesses in this case were two adults who had young children with them, Rogers said.

After officers met with the witnesses, interviewed Ricci and consulted with the District Attorney’s Office, they arrested him and took him to jail and charged him with a probation violation.

Ricci was convicted of masturbating in front of a woman last summer on the Fore River trail. Rogers said he allegedly masturbated in front of the two adults and young children on the trail Monday.

Ricci was arrested March 2 after police spotted him violating his dusk-to-dawn curfew by going out for a late-night pizza.
