Police officer charged with masturbating during home visit

A California police officer is charged with indecent exposure after he was found masturbating during a home visit in San Jose.

According to the Santa Clara County District Attorney, officer Matthew Dominguez, 32, allegedly masturbated at a family’s San Jose home last month after being called into the home for a disturbance.

At 6:30 pm on April 21, the San Jose Police Department (SJPD) received a call about a mentally ill family member – the family’s son – who had become violent. Dominguez was sent inside with two other officers.

Dominguez took the lead in the investigation, according to a statement from the county’s attorney’s office, and began speaking to the family’s 23-year-old daughter about her brother’s whereabouts. According to prosecutors, “Dominguez took an interest in her and continued to speak exclusively to her.”

The officer then sent his colleagues away to locate the subject, according to the Santa Clara County Attorney’s Office. After they left, the body-worn camera Dominguez wore showed him following the daughter around the house. Forty minutes into the investigation, the woman went to retrieve her brother’s GPS and brought it to the officer in the area between the dining room and the kitchen where he and her mother were waiting.

Dominguez then reportedly unzipped his pants and began touching in front of the two women. The mother then sent her daughter to get a glass of water, and when she was gone, Dominguez exposed himself to the woman.

The mother and daughter then fled the house and called for the husband/father and an uncle who lived nearby. The women reported the officer’s behavior to the two male relatives, and the father ran into the house.

He found Dominguez with his exposed, erect penis in his left hand and his right hand on the kitchen counter. When the two men made eye contact, the father left the house.

A few minutes later, prosecutors reported, Dominguez left the house and went back to work.

The two women, who witnessed the officer’s indecent exposure, reported the incident to the other two officers at the scene.

According to the public prosecutor, Dominguez had been with the SJPD for four years and is now on administrative leave. He was arrested Thursday and will appear before a judge to face the charges against him at 9:00 am PT on June 22 at San Jose Courthouse. The incident is currently under investigation and the Santa Clara County Attorney’s Office is seeking additional criminal information about Dominguez.

If found guilty of the charges against him, Dominguez could face a year in prison in addition to being placed on the sex offender list for 10 years.

“The alleged conduct is beyond disturbing,” said District Attorney Jeff Rosen, as quoted in the prosecutor’s official report on the incident. “Law enforcement officers are responding to our homes to help crime victims, not terrorize, traumatize and create new victims.

The incident is the latest in a series of serious violations recently committed by SJPD officers. On May 5, an SJPD officer was found drunk while investigating a baby kidnapping; In mid-March, a 24-year-old SJPD newcomer was found dead in his apartment after an overdose of fentanyl. Another officer is now on administrative leave after it was discovered he traded a meth pipe with a woman for information on a case last year.

San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo spoke live on Facebook Thursday of a “serious problem in the SJPD” that requires immediate action. Liccardo and San Jose Police Chief Anthony Mata agreed they “have a lot to do” to improve standards.
