Man accused of exposing himself to Dearborn Hts. Walgreens worker

A man arrested for allegedly exposing himself to a female employee outside a Walgreens store in Dearborn Heights.

Dearborn Heights police arrested a man who allegedly touched himself inside of a car in front of an employee who was on break.

"It can be traumatizing, you know and then with kids around. Kids go to school around here, elderly people like myself.  Not that I haven't seen it before but who wants to see somebody else's that they don't even know," said frequent customer Linda Brown.

The incident reportedly happened around 7:30 p.m. outside the Walgreens on Telegraph and Van Born while in his car. It is alleged the driver pulled up, asking for directions, and when the worker walked up to the car to help, police say the man was masturbating.

"Gross. I probably would've tried to chop it off," Brown said.

Police said he sped off in a maroon vehicle.

"That's the first time I've heard anything like that happening here. I really feel safe in the area, so it's a surprise to me but I'm glad that they caught the individual," said Sylvia Francis.

Dearborn Heights police say they're not looking for any other suspects or persons of interest in this case. They expect the person they have in custody right now could be charged as early as Thursday afternoon.
