SAN ANTONIO -- Police and citizens are getting involved to help keep our parks safe.
In the past two years, police have made 36 arrests for indecent exposure in parks across the city. Our Crime Tracker
reveals only one of those 36 arrests happened this year.
The latest incident happened in McAllister Park on Jones Maltsberger on the Northeast Side last week. Police received numerous calls about sexual activity taking place on park grounds. They set up an undercover operation, and 58-year-old Glenn Masters was arrested and charged with indecent exposure.
Police believe the undercover operations along with many park visitors who are being vigilant and calling police when they see something that doesn't look right are helping make a difference.
Police also say to be on the lookout for signage in all city parks. Each of the signs provide a number to call if you want to report a crime. The San Antonio Park Police number is 207-7273.
