He thought he would always get away with it, but an item he hadn’t thought about gave him away, his work uniform. Police agents arrested a man identified as Marco Antonio Rivera and, after an investigation, they found that he was linked to several sexual assaults that had happened over many years.

Montgomery county detectives, in Texas, indicated that a recognizable work uniform may have been the evidence that linked Marco Antonio Rivera with at least four sexual assaults, one of them committed years ago, in 2013, reported ABC 13 on Friday, November 5.

Citing the sheriff’s office, ABC 13 indicated that authorities believe Marco Antonio Rivera is the man who was caught on surveillance video when he tried to break into a woman’s apartment located at 10200 Six Pines Drive, in The Woodlands, Nov. 1. The suspect wore a t-shirt with the inscription “Fielding’s”, the name of a restaurant in the area.

The woman whose apartment underwent an attempted break-in, later posted a video of the ordeal that she went through at her front door on social media. She wanted to warn neighbors about what had happened. That was the evidence that led to the identification of Marco Antonio Rivera.

The sheriff’s office said that after the video was released, a woman contacted authorities to report that she recognized the man who appeared in the recording because he was the person who sexually assaulted her in 2016, which was an incident that had been reported to them back then.

Because of this, the video of the attempted robbery was turned over to the Cold Case Unit (the ones that haven’t been solved for years) investigators. Then, detectives met with management of Fielding’s restaurant, who identified the man as Marco Antonio Rivera, 33, and also confirmed that he lived in the same apartment complex where the victim of the attempted robbery resides.

Later, the detectives deepened their investigations and also managed to establish that the suspect in the 2016 case may have been linked to three other crimes related to sexual assaults, including one in 2013, another in 2016 and another committed in 2017.

With the evidence collected, an arrest warrant was issued for Marco Antonio Rivera, who is originally from Mexico City, and he was detained at his place of work, Fielding’s, without incident. He is now in the Montgomery County Jail on a $1 million bond, and may face additional charges for the multiple sexual assaults.

He ended up in prison for an indecent act. Authorities arrested Ernesto Meléndez for committing indecent acts inside an elementary school in the United States. A school is a place where minors should be safe and not have to face disturbing scenes like this one.

Quoting authorities, Fox 10 reported on the morning of Friday, November 5, that a man who was later identified as Ernesto Meléndez was arrested after apparently exposing himself to children at an elementary school in Phoenix, Arizona, last Wednesday .

Police explained that they had received reports on November 3 that a man was touching himself as students were leaving Western Valley Elementary School, located near Loop 202 and Buckeye Road. The accused also pursued a group of young women at that time, detailed the court documents cited by Fox 10.

Upon arrival, agents found and arrested Ernesto Meléndez, who matched the suspect’s description and had been standing right in front of the Phoenix school. Witnesses later told police that the man had exhibited his genitalia and that he had chased young girls. Once he was taken into police custody, the agents also found drug paraphernalia in his pocket, according to the court documents mentioned in the Fox 10 report. Ernesto Meléndez now faces charges of indecent exposure and deviant conduct.

Following his arrest early last month, detectives said they learned that Leroy Morales may have been the suspect in other crimes in the region, including some that may not yet have been reported to law enforcement authorities.

“Although the PPB (Portland Police Bureau) does not usually publish photos of the transfer, we are distributing three photographs of the registry in an attempt to help possible Morales victims identify him and contact detectives,” Portland Police said.

In an isolated case, another sexual assaulter was arrested for attempting to commit his indecent acts, as happened with Leroy Morales. On this occasion, the defendant appeared naked in front of children who knocked on the door of his house to ask for candy during the Halloween over the weekend.

Katu 2 reported that Steven Little, a 48-year-old sex offender, opened the door of his Utah County home “completely naked” on Saturday night and invited in some children who had only come trick or treating.
