A Longview man accused of following and exposing himself to several women at the Longview Towne Crossing shopping center was arrested Tuesday by Longview police.

Jesus Martinez-Nieto, 23, has been charged with indecent exposure. He was released Tuesday from the Gregg County Jail on $1,000 bond.

A police officer was in the Target parking lot Tuesday morning when reports came in that a man in a silver car had exposed himself to women in the same parking lot, according to a probable cause report in Martinez-Nieto’s arrest.

The officer saw a similar car and stopped it, identifying the driver as Martinez-Nieto. A woman following the car in her SUV told the officer that Martinez-Nieto had parked beside her at the Kohl’s and followed her when she moved her car to the Ulta parking lot, the report said.

“She said that he looked like he was trying to get her attention,” the report said.

When the woman came out of the Ulta store, she got back in her car and drove to the middle of the parking lot and saw Martinez-Nieto pull his car up by her, the report said. The woman told police Martinez-Nieto had exposed and grabbed himself, the report said.

When the woman began yelling, Martinez-Nieto started to leave and was pulled over by the officer, the report said. In his report, the officer said Martinez-Nieto “asked me if he would get a warning if he just told me what he did.”

Martinez-Nieto admitted he had exposed himself to the woman, the report said. The officer noted in his report that the woman had not called in the incident and there had been other callers.
