WEST HARTFORD — A Hartford man has been charged with public indecency and breach of peace after police say he was masturbating on a CT Transit bus in West Hartford and exposing himself to a woman on the bus.

When the woman moved to the front of the bus to get away from Robert Jamell Roundtree, he followed her, police said.

Roundtree was initially held on $10,000 bail for the incident, which was reported at 1 p.m. Dec. 2, but was later released after his bail was reduced and he posted $5,000 bail with a bondsman.

His case is being handled in community court in Hartford, where he is scheduled to appear Dec. 23.
