Anyone who chooses to have sex in a public place likely isn’t scared of having an audience. But the crowd that a North Philadelphia man and a Clifton Heights woman allegedly attracted on Tuesday ended up landing them behind bars.

Twenty-five police officers were taking part in a bike training program in Upper Darby Tuesday afternoon. The annual, week-long program provides bike-riding training to officers from several departments, including Clifton Heights and Haverford.

The officers were riding their bikes in Naylor’s Run Park around 4 p.m. when they say they stumbled upon 41-year-old Jennifer Harvey and 37-year-old Richard McBride. Despite the 92-degree weather, police say the two were having sex on a park bench near a baseball diamond.

“There they are, on the first base line,” said Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood to Philly.com. “There’s a bench, she is bent over the bench and our friend is behind her with his pants down to his ankle.”

While no children were around at the time, the officers arrested the duo and charged them both with open lewdness and disorderly conduct.

“Imagine being arrested by 25 cops,” Chitwood said to Philly.com. “They were as shocked as the police were.”
