JANESVILLE — Police say they have arrested an Illinois man on one count of physical abuse of a child after he, according to authorities, approached several women inside the Walmart Supercenter in Janesville on Thursday, Nov. 21.
Officials say around 9:30 p.m. on that Thursday, the suspect engaged the women in conversation. They say he offered them money — and in at least one instance, asked a 17-year-old employee whether or not she was a virgin. He proceeded to slap her on her butt and told her he wasn’t a pervert. He also kisses or attempts to kiss each female without warning.
Officials say the suspect was seen pushing a cart with food items throughout the store. But when he reaches the checkout, he leaves the cart and items behind.
He is currently being held in the Rock County Jail pending an initial court appearance.
Janesville police say more information will release more information on this case soon.
