McAllen man charged, accused of indecent exposure at STC

Suspect also arrested in UTRGV bathroom recording case

A McAllen man already facing a charge of invasive visual recording at the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley has again been arrested, this time by South Texas College police on accusations that he exposed himself in front of a student.

Alejandro Salazar Navarro Jr., 33, who also faces charges from a June arrest at UTRGV, where he is accused of attempting to record a man in a restroom stall at the Edinburg campus, now faces new charges related to an allegation he exposed himself and masturbated in front of an STC student on July 17.

Navarro is accused of approaching the student, a 20-year-old male, and asking “if he knew somewhere they could go,” the STC police report read.

The student thought Navarro “was looking for a place to smoke marihuana,” the report read, further stating that the two walked to Building X on the Pecan campus in McAllen. They entered a restroom where Navarro is accused in the report of checking if anyone was inside a stall before heading to a urinal.

“(Navarro) then turned towards him exposing his penis to him as he masturbated and began ejaculating,” the report read. “(Navarro) asked him if he would perform oral sex on him and he immediately said, ‘no.’”

The suspect is also accused of grabbing the student’s genitals over his clothes. According to the report, the student then backed away and exited the restroom.

STC police watched surveillance footage which did not have the restroom area in view. But authorities identified Navarro by his license plate, as in the UTRGV case, according to court documents.

Navarro, who is not an STC student or faculty member, was charged with indecent exposure, a class B misdemeanor. If convicted, he faces up to 180 days in jail and a fine not exceeding $2,000.

According to STC, he was ordered to stay at least 150 feet away from the campus as a condition of his release.
