A man accused of felony public indecency for a string of flashing incidents at local coffee shops says police arrested the wrong guy.
"I'm not guilty," Robert Martin said outside the courtroom for his arraignment Wednesday. "It's not me."
Police arrested Martin, 48, at his Sherwood home Jan. 4.
Detectives had been searching for a suspect after coffee shop employees in Lake Oswego, Portland, Tigard, Tualatin and Wilsonville reported a man pulling up to the drive-through window, exposing himself and masturbating.
Surveillance video was released showing the suspect in his car.
Investigators said a tip from the public led them to a used car lot where Martin's car was found. It had been sold to the dealership on Dec. 30.
Martin was arraigned in court Wednesday on seven counts of felony public indecency. He remains out of jail on bail. He is due back in court Feb. 7.
Fox 12 found that Martin has no prior criminal history.
