One man was arrested after admitting to masturbating in front of a south Greenwood gas station early Thursday morning.
Detarius Fuller, 22, of 229 Woodrow Ave., was charged with indecent exposure and public drunk in connection with the incident.
Police were called to the Hickory Point at 1401 Main St. just after 3 a.m. in reference to a man exposing himself outside the convenience store. Police arrived and found the suspect standing on a side entrance to the store looking inside.
According to a Greenwood police report:
When the suspect saw officers, he turned and was adjusting the front of his pants, while holding a cellphone. He initially told officers he was just trying to make a phone call.
A female inside the store told officers she saw someone standing outside the shop looking in, and she went toward the window to see what the man was doing when she saw him exposed. She said when the suspect saw her, he went to the side of the building out of her view, at which point she called police.
Video surveillance from the store clearly showed the suspect looking at the woman through the store window, fully exposed for about three minutes. After further questioning, the suspect admitted to committing the sex acts, but would not provide a reason why.
