Bradenton Man Arrested For Sex Crimes


Sarasota, Fla.-(Newsradio 970 WFLA)-Sarasota County deputies say they've arrested a 20 year-old Bradenton man for exposing himself to women in both Sarasota and Manatee Counties.

Sarasota deputies got their first report back in January when a woman said a man followed her into a parking lot in the University Town Center area, and began fondling himself.

In March, the Manatee County Sheriff's Office arrested a man they call a serial flasher, identified as Jacob Martinez.   News coverage of the arrest got the victim to call Manatee deputies saying that Martinez matched the description of the man who exposed himself in Sarasota.

Detectives believe that Martinez may have exposed himself to women more than reported. Investigators are asking any other possible victims to report the incident to the Sarasota Sheriff's Office Criminal Investigations Unit at 941-861-4934.
