Officers were called out around 8:30 to the 500 block of Cortez Beach. According to the arrest affidavit, 39-year-old Jose Caballero and 20-year-old Elissa Alvarez began to fondle each other and then have sex on the beach in front of several people. A woman who called police was upset, because the act was witnessed by her 4-year-old daughter. Another witness captured the carnal display on cell phone video.

Seven witnesses total filed complaints on Caballero and Alvarez's behavior, and the couple was placed under arrest.
