A 24-year-old homeless man was arrested Saturday after a police cadet reportedly saw him masturbating in a lobby of a Glendale Community College building, police said.

Around 11:35 a.m., someone called campus police to report a man acting suspiciously in the San Gabriel building, and when a cadet responded, the suspect — later identified as Kerry Smith — was watching something on his cell phone while masturbating, said Glendale Police Sgt. Robert William.

Glendale police found the man at a nearby restaurant and arrested him on suspicion of indecent exposure.

Police said Smith, who is not a student, admitted to masturbating at the college, where he said he went to use the Wi-Fi.
