WILKES-BARRE — Prosecutors are seeking bail revocation for an Edwardsville man who allegedly performed a sex act on himself in front of a woman while already out on bail in a corruption of minors case.

Luzerne County District Attorney Stefanie Salavantis and ADA Mamie Phillips filed the revocation petition in the case of George Ostroski, 67, of Zerby Avenue.

According to police, Ostroski offered alcohol to two girls, 14 and 13, on Zerby Avenue in Kingston on April 13, allegedly trying to lure them into his vehicle.

Ostroski was free on $25,000 unsecured bail in that case when he allegedly entered a woman’s residence seeking money for drugs on June 2.

The woman made repeated demands to Ostroski to leave, but he refused, according to an affidavit in the case.

She told police Ostroski sat in a kitchen chair, unzipped his pants and exposed himself while soliciting her to perform a lewd sex act. Ostroski allegedly performed a lewd sex act on himself in front of the woman, who recorded it on a cellphone, the complaint says.

Ostroski ran out of the residence when he noticed the cellphone, police said in the complaint.

A preliminary hearing in that case is scheduled on June 11 before District Judge Paul Roberts in Kingston.

Following the second arrest, Ostroski was jailed in lieu of $5,000 bail.

Salavantis and Phillips argue that Ostroski’s second arrest violated the terms of his original bail, thus bail should be revoked.

A hearing on the prosecutors’ request is set for 9 a.m. Thursday, according to court documents.
