A man attempted to sexually assault a woman while he was naked in the swimming pool of a Gold’s Gym in San Antonio, according to reports.

Police say Sergio Melendez Bernal, 25, approached a woman in the swimming pool on Saturday, TV station News 4 San Antonio reported. Surveillance video showed Bernal getting into the pool wearing nothing, according to a criminal complaint.

Prior to the alleged incident, Bernal had attempted to get the woman’s attention outside the pool. While in the pool, Bernal pulled the woman toward him twice as she tried to get away. The woman told police Bernal was naked and she felt his penis against her body. Bernal got out of the pool when someone else got in and began moving toward them, according to the report.

Bernal was arrested and charged with attempted sexual assault. He posted $15,000 bond and was fitted with a GPS monitor Tuesday.

In a statement, Gold’s Gym said: “At Gold’s Gym, the safety and privacy of our members is our top priority. We are working with the appropriate law enforcement authorities and are conducting our own investigation of this incident as well.”
