CUMMING, Ga. — A man was charged with felony public indecency after a witness spotted him masturbating in a parked car at a shopping mall on Aug. 5.

A woman said she parked her car near Clair’s in the Collection at Forsyth, 410 Peachtree Parkway. Inside the car next to her, she saw a man with his pants and underwear down touching himself inappropriately inside a black Lexus with North Carolina license plates.

The woman stayed in her car with her 15-year-old daughter and called 911.

When deputies arrived, they could see the man, identified as Michael Iannone, 48, of Norcross, in the car with his pants still down.

Deputies approached his car window and he threw a towel over his exposed self.

Deputies said Iannone, who admitted to being arrested prior for the same act, also had a half empty bottle of baby oil on the passenger seat.

Iannone had been arrested in North Carolina for public masturbation and had five convictions of public lewdness in New York, according to police records. He was taken to Forsyth County Detention Center for processing.
