Police arrested a man who allegedly exposed himself to a girl in San Mateo on Monday evening.

At 5:55 p.m., the 16-year-old victim was walking west up the roundabout leading to the pedestrian overcrossing at Monte Diablo Avenue and Amphlett Boulevard when she noticed the man masturbating while exposing himself to her, police said.

When the victim arrived at home, she contacted police and reported the incident, police said.
