EL PASO, Texas -

El Paso Police arrested a man Sunday night after he was allegedly seen masturbating inside of a vehicle while parked near a Red Box rental machine.

Police said the incident occurred on at about 8:38 p.m. Sunday at a convenience store in the 200 block of S. Americas.

A man was using the Red Box rental machine when he observed a man, later identified as 27-year-old Matthew Payan, sitting inside of an orange Chevrolet Cavalier which was parked in front of the Red Box. As the man walked towards his vehicle, which was parked near the Cavalier, he then observed the man masturbating.
