A 55-year-old man with four prior convictions for indecent exposure was arrested after he was found naked and admitted to masturbating on the grounds of an Arcadia church.

Officers were alerted about 4:05 p.m. Friday to a naked man on the grounds of Arcadia Congregational Church, 2607 S. Santa Anita Ave., said Arcadia Police Lt. Mike Castro.

They located the naked man, later identified as Paul McQuown, who admitted to masturbating on church grounds, and took him into custody without incident, Castro said.

McQuown, whose last known address was in Azusa as of 2011, was booked on suspicion of felony indecent exposure because he had four prior convictions for indecent exposure, Castro said.

McQuown was being held at the Arcadia City Jail in lieu of $35,000 bail, Castro said.

A church groundskeeper called police after seeing McQuown, naked and sitting atop a vibrator under a tree with pornographic material nearby, Castro told the San Gabriel Valley Tribune.
