Accused laundry room flasher pleads not guilty
February 25, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

A convicted flasher accused of masturbating in front of a San Mateo woman doing laundry in her apartment building last week told authorities he originally entered the room to steal clothes, according to prosecutors.

Ignacio Resendro Martinez, 40, pleaded not guilty to charges including felony indecent exposure, residential burglary, possession of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia, being under the influence and resisting arrest.

San Mateo police arrested Martinez Feb. 19 after finding him hiding in a storage room of a different building. He was reportedly under the influence of drugs and had a methamphetamine pipe.

The 37-year-old apartment resident who called police told them the man later identified as Martinez climbed through the laundry room window and began masturbating in front of her. When the woman pulled out her phone, the man fled and she called police.

Martinez told police he originally went to the laundry room to steal clothing, according to the District Attorney’s Office.

Martinez has a 2005 conviction for indecent exposure. He was sentenced in that case to a year in jail and five years probation.

In the new allegations, Martinez returns to court March 5 for a preliminary hearing estimated to last 90 minutes.

He remains in custody on $150,000 bail.
