OMAHA, Nebraska– Worst. Neighbor. Ever.
A Nebraska man has been charged with hiring prostitutes to strip on his neighbor’s front porch while he covertly watched and masturbated in his home across the street.
Douglas Goldsberry, 45, was arrested The couple who lived in the home with their two young children reported to police numerous alarming encounters of call girls showing up at their door demanding payment and pimp’s peeking in their windows, police said.
Investigators say they believe Goldsberry had been engaging in the bizarre practice for several years. His neighbors reported at least 75 instances of woman coming to their home, but cops believe there may have been many more instances that occurred when the family wasn’t home.
At first, the episodes would occur once a month or so, cops said, but had recently escalated. In March, the family said women had arrived on eight separate occasions.
“When it got more and more and more, they got law enforcement more heavily involved,” Lt. Will Rinn of the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office told the Omaha World.
The reports led police to set up surveillance and they were able to zero in on Goldsberry after interviewing several of the prostitutes, who had been hired out of classified ads posted on Backpage.
“What we found out was, basically, this guy hasn’t been paying these prostitutes either,” Dunning said.
When Goldsberry, who works as a chef, was arrested last week, cops found him in an Omaha Hotel with a suicide note and a noose fashioned from an electrical cord nearby. He was charged with felony pandering.
On the day of his arrest, Goldsberry’s wife filed for divorce.
