San Antonians can rest easy knowing that police took a public masturbator off the streets this weekend.

Police arrested Aaron Bryce Streton Friday night following a March 28 incident in which the 26-year-old was seen pleasuring himself in his car in the parking lot of a PetSmart at the Forum shopping center, according to KSAT. An off-duty police officer with the Selma Police Department said she noticed Streton after visiting the pet supplies store, noting that the suspect was masturbating "specifically so someone would see."

Concerned that other shoppers would see him, the officer walked up to Streton's vehicle and placed her badge on the window to identify herself.

She said Streton then apologized and said he was "going through rough times." A warrant obtained by KSAT said Streton then fled the scene. The officer was able to get a photo of the suspect's car and later identified him in a lineup.

Streton is facing a charge of indecent exposure.
