A Texas postal worker was arrested for exposing himself to a customer and pleasuring himself in her home earlier this year.
Byron Milton, 30, was charged with indecent exposure for the March 7 incident in Pasadena, Texas.
Milton had been asked to hold packages for Tricia Thomas, 59, for several days while she went on a trip. He showed up at her apartment around 5:30 p.m. while he was off duty, but still wearing his postal uniform, to “check to see if she had made it home safely.”
Upon first meeting Milton, Thomas told him she was a massage therapist during a casual conversation. When he first entered her home, he sat on the couch and asked Thomas to give him a massage. After telling him no and that he would have to make an appointment, Milton asked to use her restroom.
She said yes and he went into the restroom, but came out several minutes later with his pants down and told Thomas “that his groin was hurting.” He then went back into the restroom and told Thomas “he could not get his ‘antler’ in his pants to pull them up.”
After walking back to the restroom and seeing Milton still had his pants pulled down, she told him he needed to leave. Milton still didn’t come out of the restroom.
When Thomas asked him what the problem was, Milton allegedly told her to come and see. Thomas “went to the restroom and the door was open and she saw (Milton) sitting on the toilet with the lid closed and (Milton) was masturbating,” according to court documents.
Thomas demanded that he stop and leave her apartment. Thomas told police Milton looked “nervous” as he finally left.
After his arrest, Milton admitted to taking his pants off without Thomas’ permission and said “it was possible” he exposed himself to her “by accident.” He also admitted to masturbating in her bathroom.
He told police he used his position as a mail carrier to meet Thomas and admitted he should have never gone into her apartment, saying his actions were inappropriate.
The United States Postal Service told local ABC affiliate KTRK that Milton is “currently in a non-duty status.”
