SAN ANTONIO – A man was arrested Wednesday morning after police say he exposed his penis and attempted to sexually assault a woman at a San Antonio counseling office.
Montre Shepherd, 31, followed a woman through a back door of a counseling office on April 12 in the 3700 block of Colony Drive and claimed he was at the location to pay a bill before stating he wanted counseling.
The woman and another female who works at the office, who is the victim in this case, told Shepherd they needed his name and date of birth to look up his insurance information. The victim went to another room to look up the information Shepherd provided when the first woman told her Shepherd had unbuttoned his shirt and was using a company computer.
The victim went to confront Shepherd and found him using the computer with his jacket off and shirt unbuttoned, according to an arrest warrant affidavit.
She told Shepherd he needed to get off the computer, causing him to jump up quickly, the affidavit states.
That’s when police said Shepherd closed the door of the counseling room and locked it with both of them inside.
The victim started screaming for help as Shepherd walked toward her, pulling his pants down and exposing his penis, the affidavit states.
Police said the victim was able to use a computer chair to keep some distance between herself and Shepherd who kept telling the woman to “come over here.”
According to the affidavit, the victim’s coworkers were trying to get inside the locked room during the incident and Shepherd eventually unlocked the door when he heard a male coworker’s voice.
Shepherd fled the location and it was later found that he had opened six pornographic websites on the company computer.
He was arrested for attempted sexual assault, a third-degree felony, and his bond was set at $50,000, according to Bexar County jail records. If convicted, a third-degree felony charge in Texas carries a possible punishment of 2-10 years in prison.
Police said Shepherd has been involved in multiple exposure cases in the last year, including one at a hotel near the counseling office.
He was also identified in an indecency with a child-exposure and indecent exposure case from October 2022, according to the affidavit.
Bexar County court records reveal Shepherd also has an extensive criminal history that dates back to May 2017.
