Police arrested a 22-year-old Pleasanton man early Sunday morning after two reports over the last week of a suspect matching his description masturbating in a public area of an apartment complex, police said. Brian Barron was booked on suspicion of indecent exposure at 2:56 a.m. Sunday. Barron’s zipper was down at the time of his arrest and he could not explain why, police said.

Barron was reportedly on probation from a similar incident in 2011. Early Saturday morning, Pleasanton police were contacted by a woman who said she was followed while walking her dog at roughly 2 a.m. at the Las Ventannas apartment complex at 3819 Vineyard Ave. Police said that when she looked back at the man following her, his pants were down and he was masturbating.

There was a similar incident a week earlier, but responding officers were unable to locate the suspect on both occasions. Officers were in the area early Sunday looking for the suspect and came across Barron, who was allegedly wearing clothing that matched the suspect’s description provided by witnesses. He denied any involvement but had no explanation for why his zipper was down and a victim identified him.

Pleasanton police have advised residents to exercise caution when walking or jogging in public. Their suggestions include using well-lit areas, paying attention to surroundings, walking with a companion or leashed dog and carrying a cellphone along with keys or a walking stick to be used as a defensive weapon if needed. Residents who believe they are being followed are advised to call 911 and go to an open business or well-lit public area.
