The woman called police after the encounter, which took place in the 2400 block of South Interstate 35E. Police located the man, who at first denied exposing himself to anyone but later admitted to coming into contact with the victim and “being weird.” The man said he only exposed himself “a little” but when asked to clarify said his genitals were fully exposed and that he was aroused.

Police investigated and found the back door had been broken into and that several drawers and closets throughout the house had been opened. Numerous items were packed up and some items, including toothpaste, floss and a $250 mouth retainer, were thrown into a toilet bowl.

Police located the suspect in the 700 block of Dallas Drive and observed blood on his clothing, skin and right hand. The suspect said he had gone into the store to return a defective pistol, after which an argument took place and the employee asked him to leave and unholstered his gun. The suspect said he then punched the employee in the face out of fear for his life.
Police also made contact with the employee, who said he told the suspect he did not think the pistol was defective, after which the suspect became belligerent. The employee said that after asking him to leave the store, he did take his gun off his belt but kept it within its holster and placed it behind the service counter because he didn’t want it involved. He said he then placed his hand on the suspect’s back to escort him out of the store, after which the suspect turned around and punched him, giving him a laceration to his left eye.
Witnesses corroborated the employee’s story and police arrested the suspect on a charge of assault causing bodily injury, the report shows.
