A Hemet man was in custody Wednesday after police said he exposed himself in public.

Around 7:30 a.m. on Sunday, Fountain Valley Police were dispatched to the 18500 block of Brookhurst Street in response to reports that a man was masturbating in public.

Officers arrived and found 53-year-old William Bowyer lying on the ground in a sleeping bag, according to Sgt. Tony Luce. Bowyer admitted to lewd behavior in public, Luce said.

A records’ check revealed Bowyer had prior convictions for indecent exposure and disorderly conduct and was on probation, the sergeant said.

Bowyer was arrested on a probation hold and on suspicion of indecent exposure. His first court appearance is Wednesday, according to online Orange County Sheriff’s inmate records.
