A Cornell University employee who allegedly exposed himself to a woman and sexually propositioned her has been arraigned and released, according to Ithaca Police.

Brian Vesneske, 32, who works as a program analyst at Gannett Health Services, was charged with two misdemeanors — public lewdness and endangering the welfare of a child, according to a press release from the Ithaca Police Department.

On the evening of Nov. 14, Vesneske allegedly drove by the woman, who was walking on Center Street, and asked her for directions to a nearby store. He then asked for directions to a different store, at which point he “exposed his penis to her,” sexually propositioned her and subsequently drove away, according to the press release.

Vesneske was arrested Friday and arraigned in Ithaca City Court. He will reappear in Ithaca City Court in January.
