Man accused of exposing himself in car in Walmart parking lot

Orlando Marquez was released on bond after facing charges

ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. – A 20-year-old man was arrested and charged with indecent exposure in the parking lot of the Walmart on Durbin Pavilion Drive in St. Augustine just before 11:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Orlando Marquez was sitting behind the wheel of his car when a woman said he exposed himself and committed lewd acts in front of her, according to deputies.

The woman said it started when she was walking in the parking lot and a man in a silver car pulled up to her naked, performed the sex act then drove to a nearby gas station.

A deputy who was at the gas station said the man followed the woman from the parking lot to the gas station then drove off.

The St. John's County deputy said he followed him, and when he pulled him over he discovered Marquez had his pants down.

Witnesses identified Marquez as the man who exposed himself, and he was taken into custody.

He's charged with first-degree indecent exposure and disturbing the peace.

People going into the same Walmart today in St. Augustine said the incident concerns them.

"I come here at all different times. And sometimes I have a little girl that I nanny, I have her with me, and I would hate to encounter something like that," Debra Layo said.

Deputies said while leaving the scene, Marquez said, "I don't know why I did that, I seen it in a video I was watching and thought it was funny."   He is now free on bond.
