Martinez then removed his clothes and exposed himself to the girl while making sexual references, police said.

The quick-witted girl was able to escape the alleged assault by running to a nearby school bus.

Shortly after the incident, a concerned citizen reported to a police officer and reported that a naked man was cycling in the area. Police say they found Martinez near a local school.

Martinez was arrested and charged with attempted rape of a minor and assault with a deadly weapon, police said. He was being held at the Robert Presley Detention Center on $ 50,000 bond.
