Sioux Falls Police Captain Loren McManus says a man was caught exposing himself in a restaurant near 10th Street between South Fairfax and South Indiana Avenues on Wednesday.

"The initial report came from some ladies and their two four-year-old children that were inside the restaurant. They had observed a male in a booth who was exposing himself and fondling his genitals," said McManus.  "The call was made for us to come and help out. When officers arrived at the restaurant they also observed this male doing that same activity."

"He was placed under arrest and was charged with indecent exposure and indecent exposure involving a child."

McManus says the incident was especially traumatic for the children to watch.

"That is certainly not behavior you expect to see in a restaurant setting. But, it's even more shocking to the young kids that are exposed to it."

McManus identified the suspect as 65-year-old Malcolm Bigbear of Sioux Falls.

CORRECTION: Story was updated with location of restaurant.
