CROCKETT, TX (KTRE) - Crockett Police officers arrested a 36-year-old man on an indecent exposure charge on Thursday in connection to allegations that he exposed himself to a young woman while he was helping her move out of her mobile home back in late July.
James White, of Crockett, was booked into the Houston County Jail on a Class B misdemeanor charge. No information was available on his bail amount.
According to the arrest affidavit, Crockett Police officers were dispatched out to the Husky Trailer Post on South Fourth Street in reference to inappropriate behavior.
When they arrived on the scene, the complainant told them that she, her sister, and her grandfather, were at a home in the 600 block of Pineview Terrace to move furniture that she is going to use at an apartment in College station.
While they were moving the furniture, a friend of her grandfather and another man, White, showed up to help. The woman told the officers that she was standing outside when White motioned for to come inside, according to the affidavit.
Thinking that White might need help picking something up or clarification about what needed to be put on the truck, the woman went into the residence. The woman told the officers that White began making comments like, "Oh, baby. You're so hot."
At that point, White pulled his pants down, exposed himself, and began walking toward the woman, the affidavit stated.
The woman told police that she covered her face and told White to stop.
White pulled his pants back up, and when the alleged victim started walking outside, he said, "Please don't tell your grandpa. He will kill me." According to the affidavit, the woman ignored him and told her sister what had happened.
The sister, who is a juvenile, told the woman that when she went into the restroom, White walked up behind her and tried to come in, but she slammed the door in his face, the affidavit stated.
The victim told police that she waited a while to tell her grandfather what had happened because she was scared he would try to kill White.
When Crockett Police officers spoke to White about the incident, he said he was working for another man by helping him move furniture from the mobile home. He told police that he was inside drinking a soda when the woman's sister went into the bathroom.
According to the affidavit, White said while he and the victim were talking in the hallway, he began flirting with her and telling her she was "really fine." He allegedly admitted to grabbing his crotch, but said he never dropped his pants.
