(KMOV) – A registered sex offender from Texas was arrested after police say he was acting suspiciously in Arnold City Park on Sunday.

Wendell Alexander, 62, was charged Monday with loitering within 500 feet of a playground as a registered sex offender.

Authorities say Alexander, of Houston, Tex., had been at the park hanging around the playground for at least an hour.
