WEST MELBOURNE, Florida – Employees at America’s Best Value Inn in West Melbourne called law enforcement after a man drove around the parking lot aggressively soliciting women for sex, according to police.

A woman told the hotel manager that the man exposed his penis, masturbated, and offered her $100 in exchange for sex, the report said.

When the man started following her, the manager called the West Melbourne Police Department.

Officers located the vehicle in the parking lot. Sitting behind the wheel was 20-year-old Magdaleno Otero.

Otero told officers he’s never had a driver’s license. He only identified himself with a passport and is not a U.S. citizen.

The female victim approached officers and stated “the defendant exposed his sexual organ, masturbated and offered her $100.00 in exchange for sex,” according to the arrest affidavit.

Otero was arrested and transported to the Brevard County Jail where he was charged with No Driver’s License, Solicit Another for Prostitution, and Exposure of Sexual Organs.
