This afternoon, Wednesday June 4, 2014, at 1:38 p.m., North Precinct officers responded to Northeast Marine Drive at 158th Avenue on the report of a man flashing passersby.

As officers were enroute, additional information was broadcast that this man was the same person from last week who was doing the same thing. Today, the information from the witness was that the man was naked and masturbating near the bike path.

Officers arrived in the area and located the suspect seated inside his vehicle, a black BMW 750 sedan. The suspect, 27-year-old Khamidzhon Ayvazov, was not cooperative with police and briefly struggled before being taken into custody.

The witness positively identified Khamidzhon as the suspect from today and last week's incidents.

Khamidzhon was booked into the Multnomah County Jail on charges of Indecent Exposure (two counts) and Public Indecency (two counts). He'll be arraigned on Thursday in Multnomah County Court.
