Woman in Walmart Tailed by Masturbating Man

A 36-year-old woman went shopping at a Walmart in Iowa on Saturday, where she was allegedly followed by a man riding on an electric cart while he reportedly began publicly sexually pleasuring himself.

65-year-old Gary Sheriff from Marion County allegedly decided to spend part of the weekend cruising around Walmart on one of the motorized carts made available for their shoppers.

While he was in the store, Sheriff allegedly became fixated on a female shopper and used the motorized device to chase after her as she navigated the store.

As he reportedly continued pursuing the woman, Sheriff was accused of taking his penis out of his pants while proceeding to rub it, in what was assumed to be an effort to achieve sexual gratification while he trailed her up and down the aisles of the establishment.

Officers were dispatched to the location after they were made aware of the incident. As stated in the official complaint, it was purported that Sheriff “reasonably should have known the act was offensive to the viewers,” and he was placed under arrest for his alleged candid self-pleasure.

Sheriff was carted off to the Linn County jail, and he was charged for indecent exposure, which is a “serious misdemeanor” in Iowa. He was incarcerated and he is being held on a $5,000 bond, in addition to being told that he is legally banned from making any kind of contact with the alleged victim.

A preliminary hearing for the charge is scheduled for September 4, and if he is found guilty he could spend up to a year in prison.
