Sexual Predator Back Behind Bars After Masturbating, Exposing Himself

By Jason Schwartz

Delray Beach police on Tuesday arrested a sexual predator they said exposed himself to two young women on the beach.

Romount Chavze Knowell, 37, was charged with Lewd and Lascivious Exhibition and Exposure of Sexual Organs.

According to an arrest report, a woman called 911 after a man carrying a red cooler walked onto the beach, stopped in front of her, pulled down his pants and started to masturbate in front of her. She said her 15-year-old daughter and daughter’s friend were with her, Officer Nicholas Windsor wrote.

Windsor said he saw a man fitting Knowell’s description carrying a red cooler walking along South Ocean Boulevard shortly after.

Knowell told police he was walking on the beach when his “pants fell down,” Windsor said.

Knowell initially denied touching himself or masturbating on the beach. However, he later told detectives that he masturbated and exposed himself but did not “know any children were present,” according to his arrest report.

Knowell was sentenced in May 1998 to 15 years for sexual battery on a pregnant female, as well as sexual battery with force or injury, according to Department of Corrections records. He was released in October 2011, 17 months early, records show.

However, he was back in state custody one month later and was released March 2012, four months later, official records show.
