TRINITY, TX (KTRE) - Deputies with the Trinity County Sheriff's Office arrested a 17-year-old man Monday night in connection to allegations that he exposed himself to an 8-year-old girl and tried to get her to touch him inappropriately.
James Bradshaw, of Huntington, was arrested and charged with third-degree indecency with a child.
A woman called the Trinity County Sheriff's Office Monday night and reported the incident, according to Chief Deputy Tommy Park.
When TCSO deputies arrived on the scene, Bradshaw allegedly admitted to everything. The 8-tear-old victim told the deputies that Bradshaw exposed himself to her and tried to get her to touch him inappropriately, Park said.
The girl tried to run out of the room, and Bradshaw allegedly slammed the door to keep her from leaving. Then he changed his mind and let her out, Park said.
At that point, the victim told the woman what had happened, Park said.
