The St. Louis County Police Department says a record check of Martin revealed he had an active warrant for sexual misconduct out of the City of St. Louis.

According to a probable cause statement obtained by FOX 2, Martin approached the victim while she was on her way to a bus stop near Fleta Street and Seth Avenue in south St. Louis County. Around 7:30 a.m. Wednesday, Martin allegedly exposed himself and asked a girl to have sex.

The victim ran away from the scene and back to her home, and her mother notified police within minutes.

Police say Martin made his way to the home on Fleta Street and entered inside the home without permission. Another person inside the home ordered him to leave.

Martin reportedly left and went to a driveway in the same block, during which he reportedly committed other lewd acts. Police arrested him at an undisclosed time on Wednesday.

The St. Louis County Police Department is investigating the series of alleged incidents. Martin is jailed in the county on a $350,000, cash-only bond.
