Detectives Searching for Man Who Threw His Own Bodily Fluids at Store Clerk

Over the last two months, Detectives with the Tulare County Sheriff’s Office have been attempting to find 48-year-old Abel Torres Medero of Yettem, who is wanted for committing lewd acts in public. On September 1, 2018, Medero followed a victim into a store in the 41000 Block of Road 128 in Orosi. As the suspect followed the victim around the store, he placed his hand in his pants and fondled himself. The suspect then threw bodily fluids at the victim prior to running out of the store. This incident was completely random and the victim did not know the suspect.  

As Detectives investigated this incident, it was discovered Medero currently has a warrant out for his arrest in regards to an incident in 2016, where he was caught peeping into someone’s home in the City of Tulare.

If anyone has information on Medero's whereabouts, please contact Detective Nevarez or Sgt. Kennedy with the Tulare County Sheriff's Office at (559) 733-6218. Or they can remain anonymous by calling or texting (559)725-4194 or through email at tcso@tipnow.com.
