A home inspector was allegedly caught pleasuring himself with an Elmo doll on a nanny cam.
Kevin Wayne VanLuven, 59, was at a property in Oxford Township, Michigan on March 12 after the homeowners requested an inspection at the behest of new buyers.
A 22-year-old woman who owns the home was out at the time but was notified by the camera in the nursery that it had detected movement in the room, so she checked her phone which provided a live feed.
She says she saw VanLuven touching himself in the child's room before picking up a soft toy of iconic Sesame Street character Elmo from the floor and performing a lewd act with it.
Once he was finished he returned the doll to its original spot, the woman claimed.
The horrified woman recorded the man's actions before calling the police who turned up at the home to question VanLuven.
At first he insisted he had just moved the doll from the floor in order to check on an electrical outlet.
However once he was told there was a camera in the nursery, he made "incriminating statements and apologised", according to the Oakland County Sheriff's Office.

VanLuven has now been charged with two misdemeanour counts in a Rochester Hills district court.
He was arraigned on charges of aggravated indecent exposure and malicious destruction of property under $200. Bond was set at $2,500 cash or surety.
He is not permitted to be alone in a home that is not his, may not contact the homeowners of the property in question and is required to undergo a mental health evaluation.
His next court appearance is scheduled for April 19 before Judge Nancy Carniak.
"Just when I think I have seen it all, someone steps up and surprises me with a new level of disturbing actions," Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard said in a news release.
"This is a disgusting reminder to be cautious about who you let into your home.
"The actions of these homeowners will likely prevent this defendant from going into anyone else's home."
