Myrtle Beach police investigated a sexual exposure complaint at a hotel in the 2200 block of S Ocean Boulevard Sunday evening.
The victim's mother told police the incident occurred when the suspect approached her 15-year-old daughter.
She told police that the suspect was wandering around the parking lot with a laundry basket full of clothes and offered her daughter a $20 bill and gave her his room number. The girl took the money and went back to her room and told her mom.
When the mom went outside to confront the offender, he allegedly had his pants down and was performing a sexual act, according to the police report.

The victim did not press charges.
