HOUSTON - A Houston man is behind bars, charged with exposing himself to school children and under investigation for more than a dozen incidents.
Spring Branch ISD police say they arrested David Gonzalez, who allegedly was the naked man spotted in at least three separate times around Spring Branch ISD schools on May 13. It began around 7:30 a.m. at a bus stop near Hollibrook Elementary, where Gonzalez allegedly exposed himself from his car.
Spring Branch ISD Police Chief Chuck Brawner say Gonzalez attempted to box in a 14-year-old girl when she tried to walk away.
"He would back up, move forward trying to get her closer to the vehicle. When he was unsuccessful doing that he moved on," Brawner said.
He says Gonzalez was also spotted standing naked in the street near Spring Oaks Middle School and near the Tiger Trail School.
Police got a description of the white two-door car used in the incidents and discovered it was similar to one that was photographed cruising the parking lot at Northbrook High School last March. Brawner says the driver in that incident tried to coerce two female students to get in the car with him. But the video wasn't clear enough for police to discern a license number.
Brawner says the break in the case came about two weeks ago when a parent in the 2100 block of Crestdale noticed a man in a white car watching children from an apartment building parking lot. He took down the license plate and turned it over to Houston police.
The plate number led police to Gonzalez. He was arrested Wednesday night while driving with his wife near the intersection of Gessner and Hammerly. According to a police source, Gonzalez's wife said she was "done with him" once police served him with the warrant for his arrest.
Gonzalez, 33, is charged with two counts of indecency with a child by exposure. He's being held in the Harris Co Jail under $60,000 bond.
Police are trying to determine if Gonzalez could be involved in other incidents besides the 17 currently being investigated. They're asking any parent who believes he might have approached their child, or anyone with information to call Houston Crime Stoppers at 713-222-8477.
