    Teens who thought they heard a ghost in their home in San  Francisco's Presidio Heights neighborhood on Saturday night instead found a  man masturbating in a bedroom, a police spokesman said today.

    Two girls, ages 14 and 17, and a 17-year-old boy were at home in  the 3400 block of Pacific Avenue near Laurel Street at about 9:35 p.m.  Saturday when they heard a noise in an adjacent room, police Lt. Troy  Dangerfield said.

    The teens thought it was a ghost, but when they went to the  bedroom on the third floor of the home, the boy noticed that the door to the  room was closed, although he had remembered leaving it open, Dangerfield  said.

    The teens opened the door and found the man standing naked inside  the room and masturbating. He looked at them and groaned, causing them to  flee and call 911 from a neighbor's house, Dangerfield said.

    Officers respondd and found the man, identified as Tyrell Brown,  28, inside a closet. Brown was arrested on suspicion of lewd conduct,  burglary, and possession of marijuana, according to Dangerfield.

    Investigators found signs of forced entry into the home, which  sits right outside the southern edge of the Presidio.
