Man accused of fondling himself in front of children

CLEAR LAKE, Texas – A 56-year-old man was arrested after authorities said he exposed himself to children and was fondling himself in a neighborhood near Webster late last week.

Robin Earl Frazier is charged with indecent exposure with a child present. 

Around 8 p.m. Friday, Harris County Precinct 8 deputies said they received reports that Frazier was exposing himself to children and masturbating in front of them.

Witnesses told deputies Frazier left the area in a tan Chevrolet van and was last seen driving around the neighborhood in the 15900 block of Pipers View Drive.

"The female stated that he (Frazier) had sat down approximately 10 feet away from her at the park, facing her, and began to lift his trousers, expose his penis and began to masturbate,” Deputy A. Peters said.

While deputies searched the area, another witness reported having seen Frazier walk behind a bar in the 300 block of El Dorado Boulevard.

Frazier's unoccupied van was found parked behind the strip center, and deputies said they later saw Frazier walking a dog while headed toward the front of the shopping center.

Deputies detained Frazier, and the original witness was able to identify him as the man who had exposed himself to her and her child.

“There’s a lot of children that live in this neighborhood specifically and we didn’t want somebody like that, who would do those things on the street,” Peters said. “So we made sure we did everything we could to apprehend him as soon as possible.”

Frazier was arrested and booked into the Harris County Jail. His bond was set at $20,000.
