A junior high track coach in Roy chased down a 46-year-old man police say entered a girls' locker room, disrobed and began touching himself Tuesday afternoon.

There were no students in the locker room at Sand Ridge Junior High School, 2075 W. 4600 South, when the man sneaked in around 3 p.m., said Sgt. Curtis Gibson, but one of the school's track coaches who was working in her office spotted the naked man and went to get help.

The man had dressed by the time the woman returned with a male coach, who chased the man for a block and a half before catching him, Gibson said.

The man was booked into the Weber County Jail on suspicion of lewdness.
