Leander man accused of exposing genitals to teenage girls

LEANDER, TEXAS - A Leander man is accused of exposing his genitals to two teen girls -- one was 16-years-old -- outside of a Panda Express.

The Austin Police Department has issued a warrant for the arrest of Kurt Bartone, 55, for the incident that allegedly happened at the Panda Express located at 11521 N FM 620.

According to an arrest affidavit obtained by KVUE, the two girls called 911 on March 6 from a nearby gas station to report the incident. They presented the police video and photo evidence of what appeared to be the suspect standing outside the restaurant window where a man was staring directly at the victims while pulling his right shorts leg upward to expose an erect penis.

The victims later explained how the suspect allegedly rubbed his genitals upward and outward with his own hand while exposed.

Police later detained the suspect. While under questioning, he initially claimed he had not exposed himself to the teenagers and had not even been at that Panda Express location. After an officer presented him with the girls’ graphic evidence, he admitted to the offense.

Indecency with a child by exposure is a third degree felony. His bond is set at $10,000.
