Man Arrested for Having Sex With Inflatable Raft

An Ohio man was arrested on public indecency charges after cops caught him having sex with an inflatable raft, police said.

Edwin Charles Tobergta, 32, was arrested at his home in Hamilton, near Cincinnati, early Sunday after he was spotted in the bizarre act in a nearby alley, the Cincinnati Enquirer reported.

The owner of the raft told Hamilton Police Officer William Thacker he shouted at the suspect to stop.

"The witness stated the defendant appeared to be having sex with the raft due to the fact that his pants were down around his ankles," police wrote in the report.

Tobergta pulled up his pants and fled with the raft, the report states. Police said he confessed.

"Defendant advised officers that he was doing it but only because he has a problem and that he needs help and please don't send him to prison but send him somewhere to get help," the police report stated.

Tobergta had been arrested at least five times for similar offenses, most recently in 2008, the newspaper said.
