An 84-year-old man is accused of groping employees at a southwest Oklahoma City grocery store.
Lee Williams, of Oklahoma City, was arrested Saturday on three complaints of sexual battery and one complaint of trespassing.
Officers were called about 5:30 p.m. to the Homeland near SW 104 and S Pennsylvania Avenue about a man who had been banned from the store. Witnesses told police the man had been touching employees inappropriately for the past six months, according to the police report.
One of the employees told police he was locking the store about three weeks ago when Williams approached him and put his hand around his back and shoulders, making him uncomfortable.
On another occasion, an employee said he bent over to pick up an item and place it in a customer's cart when Williams came up behind him and grabbed his genitals.
According to the report, a third employee told officers Williams gave him his address and phone number. When the man didn't call, Williams confronted him. “Why don't you call me?” Williams asked and wrote down his number again, the employee told police.
During one encounter, Williams put his hand on an employee's leg during, according to the report.
Williams was booked into the Oklahoma County jail and released Sunday. Attempts to reach him by phone Monday for comment were unsuccessful.
