Sex offender caught in women's room at Children's Hospital
A registered sex offender is back in jail after a woman reported seeing him in a women's rest room at Children's Hospital. The man was reportedly touching himself while watching the female hospital employee in a bathroom stall.
Joshua Rockwood, a 20-year-old male, faces voyeurism, indecent behavior with a juvenile, marijuana possession and parole violation charges.
The indecent behavior with a juvenile charges are the result of a woman and her children being in the rest room immediately before the employee reported discovering Rockwood there.
"We're telling people to be vigilant about making sure they are safe," said Children's Hospital Spokesman Chris Price. Price said as far as they can tell, Rockwood had no reason for being at Children's Hospital.
"From what security has told me, he had no reason to be here," Price told WWL First News. "He came in through an entrance that's a waiting room."
