San Antonio Reporter Groped While Heading to Work

By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

A San Antonio reporter is warning female journalists to be vigilant after she was groped by a strange man on her way to work.

“I made eye contact with him then glanced down at my phone, I was shooting off a text and in that split second, he just groped me, grabbed by crotch area, my genitals,” said Madalyn Mendoza, who is a digital reporter at San Antonio Express News.

In a story on WOAI’s website, Mendoza explained how the unidentified man had no shame.


“It’s really sad to know that he was so comfortable doing that. He’s probably done it to other people,” said Mendoza. “I didn’t know what to think, I didn’t know what to do.”

She was able to snap a photo of the man before he ran off. It happened just before 8 a.m. near a daycare center.
