    A man from West Park is facing lewd and lascivious and indecent exposure charges after he pulled his pants down in the middle of a road and began masturbating in front of children who were standing at a bus stop, deputies said.

    The incident was reported Friday in the area of Clifton and Sutton Road in West Park.

    Parents of the children called 911, and Broward Sheriff's Office deputies quickly arrived at the scene.

    According to an arrest report, Luis Mendez, 52, told deputies that he didn't expect them to arrive so quickly, but he was just celebrating Halloween and wanted the children to see his "banana."

    Deputies said they were approached by a woman who said Mendez went up to her daughter the day before and said, "I was looking for you." She said she and her daughter had never seen Mendez before.

    A 14-year-old girl also told deputies that she saw Mendez pull his pants down and begin masturbating while she was in the car with her mother.

    Mendez was taken to a BSO substation, where he spontaneously pulled out his penis and said, "Three women, suck my banana," deputies said.

    According to the report, Mendez also began masturbating inside the holding cell.

    He was later taken to the main Broward County jail.

    Police are searching for at least two people involved in the shooting of a 16-year-old boy in northwest Miami-Dade County.

    The shooting was reported Halloween night in the area of Northwest 46th Street and 23rd Avenue.

    Police said Hasam Williams was walking to a corner store about a block away from his home when he was approached by at least two people.

    Williams' mother told Local 10 News reporter Terrell Forney that she heard the gunshots, and then received a call that her son had been shot.

    "It was a horrible feeling because I thought my baby was leaving," she said. "All this blood. He kept saying, 'Mommy, I love you.'"

    Williams was shot six times and is recovering at Jackson Memorial Hospital.

    Williams is currently a sophomore at Miami Northwestern Senior High School. The school has lost three children to gun violence this year.

    Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.

    A wrong-way crash on the Palmetto Expressway early Monday morning killed a 25-year-old woman and left a man in serious condition, according to Florida Highway Patrol.

    FHP spokeswoman Indiana Villalonga said troopers received a call about 4:30 a.m. that a dark-colored Honda was traveling south in the northbound lanes of the Palmetto Expressway near Coral Way. It was shortly thereafter that troopers were called to a head-on collision at the same location.

    "When we get a call that it's a wrong-way driver, we need to get on scene as soon as possible because, especially on the interstates, nothing comes out good when we get one of those calls," Villalonga said.

    The sedan hit an older-model Ford Explorer, which rolled over. The man driving the SUV was taken to Kendall Regional Medical Center with serious injuries. There were no passengers in either vehicle.

    The crash shut down the highway for hours as authorities worked to determine the cause of the crash.

    Villalonga said it isn't known if drugs or alcohol were involved in the crash.

    The identities of the drivers has not been released.

    Yandre Garcia Hernandez, 27, was one of 15 Cuban migrants who arrived to South Florida Halloween night. In an emotional reunion, he told Local 10 News that it's been more than 20 years since he last hugged his father.

    The migrants arrived in Key Biscayne, in a small homemade sailboat, which Hernandez helped build.

    He said the boat took about a month to build. He and 10 other men and four women spent five days at sea in it.

    We had plenty of food, plenty of water," Hernandez said in Spanish. "We had a little black nylon awning and the women would lay down there, and the men would chat and sail the boat."

    According to Hernandez, their boat was made of metal and wood and was sealed with tar. He said the boat also had a motor, but it broke down, so most of the trip was made using man-made oars and a hand-sewn sail.

    All the migrants arrived in good condition.

    "Thank God, they didn't spot us in the water," Hernandez said.

    "They gave me kisses. They were really happy," Geronimo, who filmed the migrants' arrival, said.

    "I was about to cry with them. It was actually really cool," another teenager, Sergio, said.

    For Hernandez's family, his arrival was a big relief.

    "We were so happy, so excited, because it was another member of the family, you know?" a man named Felix said.

    For Hernandez, the moment was bittersweet. He leaves behind a wife and a 3-year-old child for a new life in the U.S.

    "Things are really bad over there (in Cuba)," Hernandez said.

    "When you hit the water like that, it's something crazy, but we have to be free," Felix said. "We'd like to have the freedom, and you want to reunite with your family here, and it is what it is."

    An 18-month-old boy who was reporting missing from a Weston apartment Sunday was pulled from a nearby canal Monday morning, Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel said.

    Vihann Pullamsetti was reported missing Sunday afternoon from the Racquet Club apartments.

    Sky 10 was above the complex shortly before 10 a.m. Monday as a tarp covered his body near the canal. Israel said the body was found about 30 to 50 yards north of the home where Vihann was last seen.

    "It's very emotional," one resident in the area told Local 10 News reporter Ben Kennedy. "I have a young child. I feel so bad for the family."

    Detectives said Vihann was reported missing just after 4 p.m. Sunday.

    BSO spokeswoman Keyla Concepcion said the boy, his 5-year-old sister and their parents were in town from Tampa visiting relatives for Halloween at their home at 417 Lakeview Drive. People inside the home said Vihann's mother had just changed his diaper, because they were about to head home to Tampa. They said no more than five minutes had passed before they realized the boy was missing.

    Deputies said the family searched for Vihann for about 15 to 20 minutes before calling 911.

    Deputies searched all apartments at the Racquet Club, including the shrubs between apartment buildings. BSO divers also searched nearby canals, although murky conditions made the search difficult.

    Deputies said a neighbor spotted Vihann floating in the canal at about 9:40 a.m. and notified authorities.

    During a news conference Monday, a spokesman for the family thanked authorities and the hundreds of volunteers who helped in the search for Vihann.

    "Vihann was 18 months old. (He was a) very loving and very active kid, and we don't have him now," Kishore Ambatipupi said. "I don't have words for how devastated we are now...The mom and dad –we're trying to give them the strength that they need right now."

    The boy's mother, Kamala Gavara, 35, said she believes that her son could have gotten out through the back door.

    Israel said some people in the community continued searching for Vihann throughout Sunday night and into Monday morning with the multiple local and federal law enforcement agencies that helped in the search.

    "The loss of a child is devastating," Israel said. "As a parent, we all understand that."

    Vihann is believed to have drowned, although his body has been taken to the Medical Examiner's Office for an autopsy. Foul play is not believed to be a factor in his death.

    Eight Miami Palmetto High School students, some of whom are members of the Lacrosse team, have been called into the principal's office and counseled after allegedly posting racist and derogatory comments on social media.

    A thread of messages starts with a student saying, "Kill all (expletive)."

    Students tell Local 10 News that the message was posted in a private chat involving members of the high school’s lacrosse team.

    Someone took a screen shot and posted the words on social media for all to see. From there, it was a war of words between students.

    "I'm offended what they quoted, that we should be exterminated," said student Nycholas Calixte.

    "How did it make you feel?" Local 10 News reporter Jeff Weinsier asked another student.

    "Hurt. Honestly, these are my classmates, people I have classes with and that's how they feel about people of my color," said student Kaitlyn Wisdom.

    The school district released a statement Monday saying: "Last week, several Miami Palmetto Senior High students were involved in a private group chat containing insensitive, racially-inappropriate remarks. The remarks were captured in a screen-shot that was shared with a broader community via social media.  It is believed that all of the messaging was done off campus, outside of school hours."

    Miami-Dade County Public Schools spokesman John Shuster said the principal met with the students involved and their parents.

    The principal also informed families of all students at the school through an automated telephone call as well as a letter that was posted on Twitter.

    A 3-year-old boy who accidentally shot himself while looking for an iPad was released from Jackson Rehabilitation Hospital Tuesday after receiving extensive therapy.

    University of Miami Health pediatric neurosurgeon Dr. Sarah Jernigan performed emergency brain surgery on Darnal Mundy after the Aug. 4 shooting, removing part of his skull to relieve pressure on his brain.

    "Because he is so young, his brain has the ability to rewire (and) use other parts of his brain to take over the parts that are damaged," Jernigan said

    According to hospital officials, Darnal was shot shortly before 6 a.m. after he climbed onto a chair and reached into a drawer while searching for an iPad. Instead, he found a gun and accidentally shot himself once in the head.

    The shot woke up Darnal's parents, who found the boy lying on the floor crying.

    Darnal's father picked him up while his mother grabbed the car keys and drove them to Holtz Children's Hospital.

    "We jumped out of the car, ran in and were met by doctors and nurses," Dorphius Jean said. "They grabbed my son and I kept yelling, 'Please save him, please save him.'"

    Darnal spent three weeks in the pediatric intensive care unit before being transferred to Jackson Rehabilitation Hospital, where he underwent intensive physical, occupational and speech therapy, as well as neuropsychology and nutritional guidance.

    Doctors said Darnal is now walking and talking and regaining his strength. He will celebrate his fourth birthday in two weeks.

    Darnal said he most looks forward to returning home to play with his toys and his three dogs, Snow, Gucci and OJ.

    A body has been found near the home of a 57-year-old woman who was reporting missing in Homestead more than a week ago.

    Homestead police Detective Fernando Morales said authorities have not confirmed whether the body found Monday is that of Miriam Pichardo.

    Miami-Dade homicide detectives are investigating the case.

    Police said Pichardo, who suffers from Alzheimer's disease, wandered away from the Royal Palm Gardens Apartments off East Mowry Drive and Northeast 12th Avenue on Oct. 24.

    She was last seen wearing a white nightgown with green vertical stripes.

    Family members told Local 10 News that they were concerned for Pichardo's safety because she was badly in need of her medication, and hadn't taken it for a few days before she was reported missing.

    Pichardo's daughter said her mother went to take out the garbage and became disoriented before she disappeared.

    A 19-year-old man is thankful to be alive after his car was stolen Halloween night and he and his girlfriend were shot.

    "I wasn't expecting this to happen at all. It was unexpected," he said.

    The victim, who did not want to be identified, said he was picking up his girlfriend from work at Sunset Place when five people asked him for a ride.

    He agreed, and the group got into his car. He headed down U.S. 1 and was told to turn on Rosaro Avenue.

    "I put the car in park and he immediately put a gun to my head," he said.

    The victim said he was shot twice and his girlfriend was shot once in the knee.

    The group fled in his car, leaving them both stranded and injured. The victim managed to call 911 and he and his girlfriend were taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital.

    The victim still needs surgery on his elbow where the bullet remains lodged.

    He said he will now think twice before trusting anyone again.

    "I wouldn't say anything to them," he said. "(They'll) get what they deserve."

    A 15-year-old boy accused of crashing a stolen car into a sport utility vehicle in Boca Raton, killing a mother of two, has been identified.

    Boca Raton police said Tuesday that Wesley Brown faces charges of vehicular homicide, murder and aggravated fleeing and eluding causing death.

    Police said the Deerfield Beach teenager and a 20-year-old man robbed a valet attendant at gunpoint Sunday night at The Addison, stealing the keys to a 2016 Ford Mustang.

    Shortly before 11:30 p.m., a Boca Raton police officer spotted the stolen Mustang on Northwest Second Avenue, so the officer began to follow it and called for backup. Before officers could initiate a traffic stop, the Mustang sped off and slammed into a silver Honda Pilot that was traveling east on Palmetto Park Road.

    The driver of the SUV, identified as Wendy Harris, 46, of Boca Raton, was pronounced dead at the scene. A GoFundMe page for Harris (who is listed as Wendy Aceves) said she was a mother to a 15-year-old girl and 8-year-old boy.

    Police said Brown has been arrested six times since January.

    A passenger in the stolen car, identified as Jacquan Strowbridge, ran off after the crash and was caught a short time later, police said.

    Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office detectives are investigating the crash.

    A 15-year-old Miami Gardens boy was arrested Tuesday after he led authorities on a cross-county chase in a stolen Chevrolet Tahoe, police said.

    The chase began shortly after noon after a white 2013 Tahoe was reported stolen from the 11900 block of Southwest 185th Street.

    The vehicle's owner told Local 10 News that the Tahoe was parked at his niece's home and she left it running while she went inside. When she came out it was gone.

    Miami-Dade police said officers spotted the stolen vehicle near Goulds Park and attempted a traffic stop, but the driver kept going. He was later identified as Alain Moss.

    Police pursued the Tahoe onto Florida's Turnpike. Sky 10 followed the pursuit as the SUV was traveling north on the Palmetto Expressway, exiting on Northwest 175th Street in Miami Gardens.

    WATCH: Local 10 News live coverage of police chase

    During the chase, the Tahoe was weaving in and out of traffic and struck a red car on the Palmetto Expressway.

    The Tahoe sped through Miami Gardens, running through several stop lights. It crossed into Broward County and turned east onto Hallandale Beach Boulevard, passing by Local 10 and barreling toward Interstate 95 in Pembroke Park.

    Next, the Tahoe entered the southbound lanes of I-95, traveling north briefly, and then turned back south into Miami-Dade County. It exited on Ives Dairy Road and then got back on northbound I-95 into Broward County.

    Then the Tahoe got off on Griffin Road and turned back south on I-95, once again getting off on Hallandale Beach Boulevard and heading west.

    The Tahoe returned to Miami Gardens, speeding through several neighborhoods. The back left tire eventually blew out, but that didn't stop the driver, who continued west on Northwest 183rd Street.

    Police eventually boxed in the Tahoe at Northwest 183rd Street and Northwest 39th Court, where a swarm of officers converged on the vehicle with their guns drawn. The driver was handcuffed and taken into custody.

    Moss faces several charges, including grand theft auto, fleeing and eluding, aggravated assault and driving without a valid license.

    The Florida Department of Law Enforcement arrested 12 men in a recent copper theft sting.

    The men are accused of stealing more than $500,000 in underground copper cable from South Florida to central Florida.

    Authorities said the investigation began in October 2014 after they received a request by Florida Power & Light to investigate recent thefts and destruction of underground electric and fiber optic cables.

    Prosecutors said seven of the 13 men worked for a company that FPL subcontracted to work on the underground systems.

    "These thefts posed a substantial threat to the community by making critical electric and communications infrastructure vulnerable to failure, with at least one theft damaging adjacent fiber optic cables carrying 911 communications," FDLE Miami special agent in charge Troy Walker said.

    Authorities said most of the the thefts were reported in Miami-Dade County, but were also reported in Broward and Volusia counties.

    "These thieves aimed to put dollars in their pockets by severing those lines of electrical power that keep the pulse of our community beating," Miami-Dade County state attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle said. "They aimed to cut the security of Miami, Miami Beach and all of Miami-Dade County. This joint partnership between my prosecutors, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and Florida Power & Light Company security would not let that happen. I am very proud of these final investigative results."

    According to prosecutors, the men got away with the thefts for a while because they would wear their work vests and hard hats to pretend that they were still working in the area. They also allegedly put the company logo on personal trucks to avoid getting caught.

    Authorities said the men sold the stolen copper to metal recycling facilities in Miami-Dade County.

    Below is a list of the suspects and their charges. Authorities said they are searching for one more person involved in the crime ring.

    Carlos H. Aragon, 33, Miami.

    Charges – RICO, theft of cooper wire, organized scheme to defraud, grand theft, burglary to an unoccupied structure, dealing in stolen property, attempted burglary to an unoccupied structure, and possession of burglary tools.

    A land of emerald green surrounds the "poblado" of the Valle de Viñales, one of the world's best kept ecological gems, according to the United Nations World Heritage list. 

    All is fairly quiet in Viñales' downtown plaza, named after national hero Jose Marti, until the tourists get off their buses. Cuban entrepreneurs are ready to bombard them with their sales pitches.

    A man holding laminated scenic photographs of the valley rushes French tourists. He tells them he is opening the doors of his home for a price. His promises: A private bathroom, hot water, a television and a refrigerator.

    "Look, this has a view to the mountains," he said.

    When the tourist rejects his rental offer, the man turns to selling something else.

    "I am a singer," he said.

    Sitting on a bench nearby was 83-year-old Juan Echevarria, who in true Cuban cowboy fashion wore a woven "sombrero" and held up a cigar.The province of Pinar del Rio is known for growing some of the best tobacco in the world, but Echevarria smokes a "puro" of less quality. The best quality is for foreigners.

    VIEW PHOTOS: Tour the province of Pinar del Rio

    Aside from the tobacco farms, the area's attractions also include caves to explore, a colorful mountainside mural to honor the pre-colonial natives and plenty of charming architecture.

    NEW PLANS A Cuban official recently told Granma that they are focusing their efforts on ecoturism. They want it to be a destination for thrill-seekers and plan on hiring tour guides for hikers and climbers. During the first week of December, the area will host the Titan Tropic Cuba, an international mountain biking event that was last held in Morocco as the Titan Desert. The event's registration already has participants from Panama, Venezuela, Colombia and Costa Rica.

    But even when tourism money flows into the valley, Echevarria said he doesn't feel much hope, because he struggles to survive -- even though he has worked hard all of his life.

    He worked in coffee plantations, with cattle, and he remembers waking up after midnight to milk cows. But he no longer has the strength to do hard labor, so he has retired.

    About 18.3 percent of the 11.3 million Cubans living on the island were older that 60 years old in 2013, according to government statistics. In 2030, authorities expect it to increase to 30 percent. Although they have access to medical visits, their pension remains low. 

    Some retirees said they get up to $15 monthly pension. But even $15 is not enough. Most of the retirees said they work on the side selling peanuts, cigarettes or whatever they can to get supplemental income. They scrape by with their monthly rations, which can last for about a week. Echevarria said he gets about $8 a month.

    "That's barely enough to eat," he said.

    Miami-Dade police are executing a judge's order at rapper Lil Wayne's Miami Beach mansion that involves a civil case, authorities said.

    Sky 10 was above the home shortly after 5 p.m. as items from the home were loaded into a large truck.

    At one point, it appeared that people were putting wrapped artwork into the truck.

    Further details were not immediately released, although the rapper's financial issues have recently been in the spotlight.

    Just last month, a Miami-Dade County judge denied a private jet company's request to have officers seize assets at the home.

    The Miami Herald reported that Signature Group, which owns the rapper's leased Gulfstream II, sued Lil Wayne after he stopped paying his $55,000-a-month lease.

    In that case, a judge ruled that Lil Wayne had to pay the company more than $2 million, including interests and attorney's fees.

    Authorities say a 37-year-old man was arrested Wednesday morning for trafficking heroin in Hollywood. Jose Morales was charged with four counts of trafficking heroin and four counts of conspiring to traffic heroin.

    Police say that during they summer they learned of a drug trafficking organization selling and distributing large amounts of heroin, cocaine and weapons in the entire city of Hollywood. Witnesses told authorities the sales had been going on for several years.

    After an investigation, police contacted Morales about the arrest. Morales told police he tried to get a job, but couldn't because of a prior criminal record.

    Police said Morales told an officer that "It is what it is. I know what I did. I'm a man that is all I can say."

    Morales was previously released out on bond for a previous heroin trafficking case in Broward County.
