A 27-year-old man exposed himself multiple times at shopping centers in the Tysons West area last week, Fairfax County police say.

The man was arrested last Tuesday (July 26) after allegedly exposing himself twice in front of a woman and juvenile who were shopping in the clothing section of the Walmart in Tysons West (1500 Cornerside Blvd.) that day.

Police were called to the scene around 6:45 p.m., but the man had left the department store before they arrived.

“Hours later, loss prevention officers from Walmart saw the man nearby and called police. Officers found the man and took him into custody,” the Fairfax County Police Department said in a news release today (Monday).

According to police, the man is also a suspect in other exposure incidents. Detectives are seeking more information on incidents that occurred between July 24 and July 26 at the Walmart and around the Tysons Square shopping center (8359 Leesburg Pike).

The man has been charged with two counts of indecent liberties and two counts of indecent exposure, all of them felonies. He is currently being held at the Adult Detention Center without bond.

The FCPD advises any possible victims or anyone else with information to contact its Major Crimes Bureau at 703-246-7800, option 3. Tips can be submitted anonymously through Crime Solvers by phone (1-866-411-TIPS) or online.

“Anonymous tipsters are eligible for cash rewards of $100 to $1,000 dollars,” the department said. “Please leave contact information if you wish for a detective to follow up with you.”

This isn’t the first time this year customers of the Tysons West Walmart have been subjected to some unwanted sights. A 30-year-old man faced charges for exposing himself at the store in May and allegedly attempting to bribe the officers who arrested him, FFXnow previously reported from court documents.
