FRANKLIN COUNTY, Ohio - The Franklin County Sheriff's Office said a man was arrested and charged for allegedly flashing people multiple times at stores at Lennox Town Center.

According to the sheriff's office, a young girl was shopping with her mother on May 27 around 4:50 p.m when the man kneeled down and exposed himself.

The sheriff's office said he approached the mother and child again and exposed himself a second time a few minutes later.

Investigators said the man then left the store and entered the Target store next door and exposed himself several times to multiple women.

Sixty-three-year-old Mark Brown was charged with public indecency on June 3 and could face additional charges of gross sexual imposition, the sheriff's office said.

The sheriff's office said Brown was charged in Upper Arlington Mayor's Court in May 2019 in a similar incident involving a 16-year-old victim at Half Price Books on West Lane Avenue.

Brown pleaded guilty in the 2019 case and was placed on probation, the sheriff's office said.
