Man Arrested for Allegedly Masturbating at BART Station

(Mike Koozmin/S.F. Examiner)

A quick Google search of the phrase “BART masturbate” yields a plethora of disturbing incidents, especially for the many who take public transit.

Thanks to a man at the West Oakland BART station Saturday, another will be added.

At 7:40 a.m., officers investigated a report of a man masturbating on the platform, Bay City News reports Monday. Police says the male suspect resisted arrest and a struggle occurred before they were able to detain him.

Officers placed him on psychiatric detention and took him to a hospital after determining he needed a mental health evaluation. The suspect was eventually cleared from the hospital, issued a prohibition order to temporarily restricts him from riding BART, and booked into the Alameda County jail on suspicion of resisting arrest.
