MASSAPEQUA - Police say they arrested a man who exposed himself to a woman in the parking lot of the Massapequa DMV.

According to investigators, Gary Roven, 58, approached the woman yesterday afternoon and told her she had a spider on her shoe and offered to remove it.

Instead, police say the Massapequa man started massaging her leg while exposing and touching himself.

The woman's son caught Roven as he tried to get away and held him until officers arrived at the scene, police say.

Some of Roven's neighbors say the 58-year-old is known in the area for his strange behavior.

Roven faces sexual abuse and public lewdness charges. He is expected to be arraigned in two weeks.
