A couple was found having sex in public outside of the entrance to the Crab Deck Bar and Restaurant in Edgewood during lunch hour Monday, the Harford County Sheriff's Office reported.

Deputies responded to the restaurant, in the 2000 block of Pulaski Highway, at 12:41 p.m. where a man and woman were reported having a sexual encounter in the open, Sheriff's Office spokesman Edward Hopkins said. The restaurant was closed at the time.

"Upon arrival deputies observed a white male and a white female standing in the screened vestibule area of the Crab Deck with their pants down performing sexual intercourse," Hopkins wrote in an e-mail.

A 32-year-old California man and a 34-year-old New York woman were both charged with liquor law violations and indecent exposure.
