On Friday at about 12:34 p.m., a female customer walked into the Broadview Food Mart located at 3530 N. Verdugo Road to purchase a lottery ticket. As she went to the cashier she and the cashier greeted each other. The cashier was identified as the owner of the store, Riad Masoudi. Suddenly, Masoudi lifted his shirt and exposed his erect penis and placed it on the counter in front of the 44-year-old victim. He reportedly made some explicit comments to the victim before she walked out and called the police.
Masoudi was placed under arrest for indecent exposure, a misdemeanor violation.
