October 19, 2014
Police arrested a 32-year-old San Luis Obispo man after he allegedly accosted a housekeeper at the Motel 6 on Calle Joaquin in San Luis Obispo on Saturday afternoon, according to police.
Shortly after 1 p.m., Benjamin Kuhzarani allegedly entered a hotel room in which a housekeeper had left the door ajar. He then dropped his pants to his knees, exposed his penis and locked the door.
The housekeeper screamed and Kuhzarani ran from the room.
San Luis Obispo Sheriff’s deputies, who were very familiar with Kuhzarani, were at the motel on an unrelated call and saw the alleged flasher running from the room containing the screaming housekeeper. The deputies then told responding San Luis Obispo police officers who they saw fleeing.
While police officers were searching for the suspect, a housekeeper discovered Kuhzarani in another room that had also been left open for cleaning. Sheriff deputies then assisted an officer who was attempting to apprehend the resisting suspect.
Officers booked Kuhzarani into the San Luis Obispo County Jail for felony indecent exposure, resisting arrest and possession of a controlled substance. Bail was set $20,000.
