NEWARK, Del. (AP)- An executive with New Jersey's largest private health care system is accused of performing lewd acts in front of female University of Delaware students.

Newark police on Friday charged 57-year-old Gerald Picerno of Morristown, New Jersey, with lewdness, indecent exposure and other counts.

New Jersey's RWJBarnabas Health Systems says Picerno is on leave as chief strategy officer. A phone call to a number listed for him went unanswered, and the name of his lawyer was not available.

The charges stem from incidents around the University of Delaware in September and October. A 20-year-old female student reported finding a lewd note, another student said a naked man masturbated near her vehicle and two others saw a naked man.

Police say fingerprints from the letter led to Picerno.
