A 31-year-old man was arrested for indecent exposure after a female resident placed him under citizen's arrest when she saw him masturbating underneath the Payran Bridge.
The incident occurred on Nov. 27 at about 5 p.m. along the bicycle trail that winds beneath the bridge.
A woman riding her bicycle on the path told police she saw a man later identified as Travis R. Hilkey, a transient from Petaluma, exposing himself and masturbating. When she returned a while later, he was still exposed. The female witness placed Hilkey under citizen's arrest, called police and waited for officers to arrive and take custody of him.
Hilkey was arrested for misdemeanor indecent exposure and transported to county jail.
