STATEMENT OF PROBABLE CAUSE 4/24/2018 11:19:48 AM
Ramsey County, MN

 
The Complainant having reviewed the applicable reports believes the following facts to be true:
 
On or about April 22, 2018 at approximately 3:00 p.m., officers with the St. Paul Police Department were
sent to the Como Zoo, located at 1225 Eastbrook Drive in the City of St. Paul, Ramsey County, Minnesota,
on a call of a male masturbating in the public restroom.  Upon arrival, police observed that the park was
very busy, with children and families of all ages visiting the zoo.   They spoke to a witness, identified as
C.H., who stated that earlier he had been in the male restroom near the gorilla exhibit area of the zoo. 
While in the bathroom, C.H. observed a male later identified as Wallace Lynn Moore, dob 1-15-52, the
Defendant herein, standing at one of the urinals masturbating.  He went on to say that the Defendant was
not concealing his action in any way, and when asked to demonstrate the motion the Defendant was
making, C.H. cupped his hand in front of his torso and moved it in front of himself in a stroking motion. 
Another witness told police that the Defendant had been in the restroom for at least 15 minutes before
exiting.

Police apprehended the Defendant in the Conservatory area, where security had been following him for
several minutes.  He had also been seen around another restroom, and going into the children’s play area.

A record check reveals that in 1991 the Defendant was convicted of Criminal Sexual Conduct in the
Second Degree (CSC 2) and Kidnapping in file no. 27-CR-91-40785.  In addition, he was also convicted
of two counts of CSC 2 in 1987, and one count of CSC 2 in 1985.
