DANVERS — Police say a local man was arrested after two women saw him masturbating in a parked car in the fire lane outside of Kohl’s on Sunday morning.
Steven Dipietro, 28, of 20 Bates St., was arrested on a charge of open and gross lewdness.
Police received a report shortly before 11 a.m. that a 65-year-old woman and her 45-year-old daughter had seen a man exposing himself in front of the store, according to the incident log and an interview with an officer. The women had a 5-year-old child with them at the time.
Dipietro had left the area by the time police arrived but was located shortly thereafter at Buffalo Wild Wings across the Liberty Tree Mall, where he was arrested, the officer said.
