A. 
Loitering. No person shall loiter or prowl in a place, at a time or in a manner not usual for law abiding individuals under circumstances that warrant alarm for the safety of persons or property in the vicinity. Among the circumstances which may be considered in determining whether such alarm is warranted is the fact that the actor takes flight upon appearance of a peace officer, refuses to identify himself or manifestly endeavors to conceal himself or any object. Unless flight by the actor or other circumstances make it impracticable, a peace officer shall, prior to any arrest for any offense under this section, afford the actor an opportunity to dispel any alarm which would otherwise be warranted by requesting him to identify himself and explain his presence and conduct. No person shall be convicted of an offense under this section if the peace officer did not comply with the preceding sentence or if it appears at trial that the explanation given by the actor was true and, if believed by the peace officer at the time, would have dispelled the alarm.
B. 
Dwelling areas, etc. No person shall wait or otherwise loiter in the vicinity of any private dwelling house, apartment building or any other place of residence with the unlawful intent to watch, gaze or look upon the occupants therein in a clandestine manner.
C. 
Public rest rooms. No person shall loiter in or about any toilet open to the public for the purpose of engaging in or soliciting any lewd or lascivious or any unlawful act.
D. 
Public grounds. No person shall loiter in or about any public grounds at or near where children or students normally congregate. As used in this subsection, "loiter" means to delay, linger or idle in or about any public grounds without a lawful purpose for being present.
