Deputies responded to the World Market located at 30 Malphrus Road just before 8:00 p.m. last Wednesday, January 16, to an alleged indecent exposure incident. After arrival, deputies met with a 23-year-old woman who worked at the store who alleged that an unknown man had exposed his genitals to her.
The employee stated that she was bent over stocking a shelf when she looked up and noticed the man standing near her. She reported that the subject had his genitals sticking out the zipper of his pants and stood there staring at her without speaking.
The employee walked away to alert a supervisor at which time the subject walked out of the store. He was reportedly seen leaving the area on a moped or scooter.
Video surveillance of the incident shows a white man, approximately 20-30 years of age with short brown hair and glasses, wearing a short-sleeve green button-up shirt and khaki pants. Investigators are asking anyone with information regarding the identity of the pictured individual to contact either Investigator Cpl. B. Cooler at 843-255-3423 or Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC (274-6372) or text the word TIPSC with a message to CRIMES (274637).
