FARGO — A Fargo man has been accused of masturbating while looking at pornography in two restaurants.

Marc Howard Styles, 49, was charged Monday, Nov. 16, in Cass County District Court with two Class C felony counts of indecent exposure.

According to court documents:

Customers at the Fryn' Pan Family Restaurant, 300 Main Ave., told an employee they saw Styles looking at sexually explicit material while touching himself around 3 a.m. Sunday. When confronted, he became aggravated and refused to leave.

A cook also observed Styles watching pornography with his hand moving underneath a blanket.

Styles denied being asked to leave or masturbating, according to court documents. He acknowledged watching pornography but said "people needed to mind their own business," the court documents said.

The criminal complaint also accused Styles of a similar incident that allegedly occurred around 5:30 a.m. Sunday at Perkins, 1220 36th St. S.
