BRYAN (KHOU)  – A man accused of flashing women in the Austin's Estates neighborhood face new charges, according to a report by KBTX News 3.

Calvin Coffer is charged with indecent exposure and driving while license suspended. His bond increased with the new charges from $2,000 to $52,000.

According to KBTX News 3, Coffer was arrested around 8 p.m. Wednesday after knocking on the back door of a police officer’s home. A few minutes before that encounter, Coffer was spotted in a backyard on Esquire Court. According to the probable cause statement, Douglas Taylor said his daughter saw a man in the backyard.

When Taylor went outside to ask Coffer if he could help, Coffer said he was having car trouble and did not know the road in the area. Taylor told Coffer he was in his backyard, not a road.

Coffer then said he was thirsty and asked Taylor if he had a water hose. Taylor turned on the hose and noticed scratches on Coffer. When he asked how Coffer got them, Coffer said from barbed wire. Taylor then asked, “Where did you get in barbed wire?” Instead of answering, Coffer thanked him for the water and walked off into the woods.

He emerged in the backyard of Lt. Alan Baron, an officer with the University Police Department. Coffer knocked on his back door and told Baron he was having car trouble and needed help. Baron told him to walk around to the front of the house.

Baron then called dispatch and said a man matching the flasher’s description was at his house.

When police arrived a short time later, Coffer told them he was not sure where he came from or how he got the scratches. The last thing he remembered was being with his friend “Nicky” around 7:30 a.m.

Coffer was taken into custody for questioning and later charged with criminal trespass.

The indecent exposure charge comes from one of two incidents in the same neighborhood. Around 7 a.m., a woman in the 3600 block of Western said Coffer blocked her driveway with his van, while he sat inside touching himself. About an hour later, a female jogger said Coffer followed her and then exposed himself.

Police said there was insufficient evidence to charge him with two counts of indecent exposure.

Indecent exposure is a class B misdemeanor punishable by up to 180 days in jail.
