A crossdressing man pushed a 12-year-old girl to the ground, exposed himself and made sexual comments, California police said.
Around 7:15 a.m. Oct 13, a citizen flagged down a Corona, California police officer in the 2100 block of W. Ontario Ave. and reported a naked man was riding a bicycle in the area.
Officers located a nude man, identified as Carlos Martinez, 41, riding a bike near a local school, according to Corona police.
Officers detained Martinez and learned before they were notified, he was allegedly wearing women’s clothing and approached a 12-year-old student as she walked to school, police said.
Cops say Martinez shoved the girl to the ground and removed his clothing, exposing his nude body while making sexual references.
The student acted quickly and escaped the assault by running to a nearby school bus, police said.
Martinez was arrested for attempted rape of a minor and assault with a deadly weapon. He is being held at the Robert Presley Detention Center with bail set at $50,000.
