WEST PARK (CBSMiami) — A South Florida man is facing charges, accused of masturbating in the middle of the road, near children in West Park.

Broward Sheriff’s deputies said they were called out to the intersection of Clifton Road and Sutton Road on Friday just before 7 a.m.

Deputies said they met with a victim who identified the man as 52-year old Luis Mendez who lives in West Park.

According to his arrest report, Mendez “stopped in the middle of the road and stared in the direction of the children at the bus stop” then started masturbating.

Once deputies contacted Mendez, the report states, he said he was celebrating Halloween and “he wanted the children to see his ‘banana’ referring to his penis.”

It also says Mendez told deputies he didn’t expect them to arrive so soon.

Mendez is now facing five counts for indecent exposure in public and lewd and lascivious behavior on a minor.
