Odessa man back behind bars after being re-arrested

ODESSA, TX (KWES) - Parents reacted to the news of the same Odessa man being back behind bars after being charged with indecency with a child.

Samuel Flotte Samaniego, 42, was arrested on Tuesday morning.

Back on Jan. 19, police were called out to the 1200 block of Wilshire where a victim reported a man exposed himself to a 10-year-old child and also chased the child, police said.

Parents in the area are keeping a close eye on their kids.

Kelly Anaya, a Dowling Elementary School parent said, "I don't even let her walk home. I go pick her up even though we are just across the street."

Marci Harrison, another parent said "I ran in the streets until the street lights came on but I'm not willing to let my daughter out, so it's sad."

According to the report, Samaniego fit the description and was later identified in a photo lineup.

Samaniego is the same man who was arrested on Friday for four counts of indecent exposure and evading arrest in the 500 block of East 9th Street.
