A Ukiah man was arrested Monday night on suspicion of exposing himself to clients at Curves, an all women's exercise facility.
When Ukiah police arrived at the south Ukiah business at about 6 p.m., they found Clarence Christmas, 39, in a corner of the building, officials said. He was nude from the waist down and masturbating, according to police.
A Curves employee had told Christmas to leave or she would call police, but he instead he grabbed her by the shoulder, police said.
She told police he grabbed her buttocks when she turned away to get a phone to call police, officials said. He also is suspected of touching another woman while masturbating, police said.
Christmas, who on state parole, was arrested on suspicion of indecent exposure, sexual battery and parole violation. He had been arrested in May 2010 when he was found without pants or underwear while watching a California Department of Corrections crew eradicating weeds and brush along the railroad tracks in Ukiah, police said. At that time, he was arrested for indecent exposure, possession of a methamphetamine smoking pipe and parole violation.
Police said anyone who encounters someone displaying bizarre sexual behavior or aggression should call police rather than approach the subject.
