SEATTLE, WA -- Police arrested a 31-year-old man after he allegedly flashed employees of a Seattle grocery store and then placed his genitals on the scanner of a self-checkout machine.

Employees say the man fled when they caught him in the act, but he returned five hours later, according to the Seattle Police Department. They confronted him and asked him to leave. The suspect refused and got into a shoving match with store security.

Finally the suspect left, and officers arrested him down the street. He now faces a charge of indecent exposure.
