Crime

CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — A 53-year-old man was charged by Chesterfield County Police for exposing himself at multiple women’s clothing stores.

CCPD identified the man as George W. Phillips of Amelia. On July 26, police said they obtained two warrants for indecent exposure for Phillips.

Police said one incident happened in February when Phillips entered the women’s store Catherines on the 4800 block of Commonwealth Centre Parkway. Phillips reportedly picked out something to try on and once inside the dressing room, asked the store employee for help putting the item on.

“An employee reported that when she entered the dressing room, the male exposed his genitals to her,” a spokesperson for Chesterfield Police said.

Phillips left the store without buying anything, police said. Store employees then reported to police that the same man returned to the store in March and exposed his genitals again.

On May 8, Chesterfield Police said Phillips exposed his genitals to a store employee at Lane Bryant on the 11300 block of Midlothian Turnpike

According to police, Phillips asked the store employee to bring him an item in different size and when she returned he exposed himself to her.

Phillips purchased the items and left the store, police said.

Police believe there may be additional victims of Phillips. Anyone who believes they may have been a victim of Phillips is asked to contact Chesterfield County Police at 804-748-1251.
