Brownsville police have arrested 30-year-old man accused of exposing himself to a store clerk.

Juan Romero Jr. was taken into custody by the Brownsville Police Department’s Fugitive Apprehension Unit Tuesday, said investigator Martin Sandoval, spokesman for Brownsville PD.

Sandoval said that on July 13, 2021, Romero Jr. went into a local business at the 4600 block of Central Circle in Brownsville. He made a purchase and then exposed himself to the clerk, according to police.
