Man banned from Glendale Galleria for indecent exposure

A second man in less than two months has been banned from the Glendale Galleria after inappropriately touching himself inside Macy’s.

Keane Dean, 25, of Santa Clarita was banned from the mall for three years in connection with his Feb. 28 arrest at the department store, according to Glendale police spokeswoman Tahnee Lightfoot.

Prosecutors this week charged Dean with indecent exposure, vandalism and burglary, according to Los Angeles County Superior Court records.

Dean’s arrest marks the second time since Jan. 17 that police have arrested someone for indecent exposure inside Macy’s.

Macy’s employees reported about 1 p.m. last Friday that he was reportedly masturbating inside the store, Lightfoot said.

He was allegedly staring at two female shoppers as he touched himself in the men’s clothing department. The women, she said, were not aware of his behavior.

Dean, she said, reportedly used two shirts from a clothing display to clean himself.

He grabbed a pair of socks, which he hid in the front of his pants, and then walked out of the store without paying, Lightfoot said.

That’s when police arrested him outside the store.

Dean was convicted in Glendale in 2008 of committing lewd acts in public.

In the earlier indecent-exposure incident in Macy’s, police said they arrested Noe Duarte, 45, of Los Angeles after he reportedly masturbated behind an unsuspecting female customer and bumped into the buttocks of several female shoppers.

Dean or Duarte could be arrested for trespassing if they are seen on the mall premises during their bans.
