MARBLE FALLS — An investigation of two complaints led Marble Falls police to arrest 39-year-old Charles Kevin Jenkins on Feb. 28 and charge him with indecency with a child by exposure.

According to an arrest warrant affidavit compiled by Marble Falls Police Investigator Steven Eckstein and signed by Marble Falls Municipal Judge Cheryl Pounds, a woman reported that the suspect had exposed himself to one of her employees on Feb. 15.

The employee told a Marble Falls police officer that the man approached her “as close as he could” and was allegedly moving his hands inappropriately in his crotch region, according to the affidavit. When two customers entered the store, the suspect turned toward them upon which the employee noticed the man’s pants were pulled down half way across his buttocks, the court document stated.

At one point, the employee noticed the man walking back and forth to the business’ front entrance with himself exposed, the affidavit stated.

Officers had a second complaint regarding the suspect when a mother reported Feb. 28 that the man had exposed himself to her and her 22-month old child at a local church earlier in the same month, according to the affidavit.

That incident occurred Feb. 11 when the woman was picking her child up from the church, the affidavit stated. The woman told officers that church officials could identify the suspect, the document said.

Marble Falls police responded to the church Feb. 28 where officials directed the officer to the man. The officer located the man and asked him about the alleged incident, according to the affidavit, but he refused to discuss it.

After obtaining the arrest warrant, MFPD officers arrested the suspect and booked him into the Burnet County Jail where he was being held as of March 4 in lieu of a $50,000 bond. If convicted, the man faces up to 10 years in prison.
