GUAVA AVENUE – La Mesa police arrested a man who was caught on a home’s surveillance camera exposing himself and attempting to burglarize the home.

Police said the man – 27-year-old Matthew Henigan of San Diego – knocked on the door of a home in the 2100 block of Guava Avenue on April 12th. He allegedly tried to sell candy and left the area when the occupant refused.

Two days later, the home’s owner found strange clothing in the back yard and then checked his home’s surveillance cameras. Police say the tapes showed Henigan checking for open doors and windows and crawling beneath the home. At one point, he masturbated while facing one of the cameras, police said.

Henigan, who turned himself into San Diego City Police, was booked into county jail and charged with residential burglary.
