Man Sets House On Fire After Being Banned From Masturbating (GRAPHICCONTENT!)
A man allegedly torched his own apartment in retaliation for being banned from masturbating in front of open windows.
Kenneth Haskins was told by his building's managers to "stop performing sex acts" in full view of his neighbours.
However, believing the ban was "unfair", the 58-year-old then tried to burn the property to the ground, it is reported.
Haskins - who is severely disfigured after a shotgun accident years before - was charged with arson after fire investigators found flammable liquids had been used in both the kitchen and the bedroom to accelerate the flames.
A total of 28 apartments were evacuated during the blaze. While smoke and fire damage was contained to Haskins's apartment, two other properties sustained water damage, leaving four people homeless, fire rescue officials said.
