On February 18, 2016, at approximately 5:00 p.m., the adult female victim was doing laundry at the Xpress Laundry Lavanderia, located at 1406 Greenville Avenue, when an unknown black male approached her and in Spanish asked for money. The victim did not have any money and moved away from the suspect. The suspect then exposed his penis and masturbated in full view of the victim. The victim fled from the laundromat and called for police. Dallas Police responded but could not locate the suspect. This offense was reported on case number 039961-2016.
Detectives later canvassed the shopping center where the offense occurred and were informed by citizens that the suspect has been known to panhandle in the area. Detectives asked the citizens to call 9-1-1 immediately if the suspect returned. On April 20, 2016, patrol officers responded to a disturbance call at 1406 Greenville Avenue and notified detectives that a potential suspect in the indecent exposure offense had been identified.
On April 27, 2016, the female victim was presented a photographic lineup, and she identified Rogelio Martinez, B/M/49, as the suspect who had exposed his penis and masturbated in her presence. A warrant for Indecent Exposure was issued for the arrest of Martinez. Rogelio Martinez is a dark skinned Latin male, 6’02” and weighs 170 pounds. Martinez frequently wears Dickies type pants, black shoes, and is described as unkempt and unshaven.
Anyone with information as to the whereabouts of Rogelio Martinez is asked to call Dallas Police immediately.
