(KMOV) – Police have arrested a man they say sexually assaulted women on multiple occasions at a St. Ann Shop N’ Save grocery store.
Earl Maxwell, 51, was arrested and charged with third-degree offensive touching assault.
According to police, Maxwell grabbed at least three women at the Shop N’ Save off St. Charles Rock Rd.
Police say surveillance footage showed Maxwell circling the store just before tricking a woman into bending over. He then runs his hands down her thighs and legs.
“He comes and says, ‘Ma’am you have something on your left leg,’ she falls for that, bends down, and he takes advantage of her,” said St. Ann Police Chief Jiminez.
