A man sprayed a woman with semen in a grocery store this month, and police believe she wasn't his only victim.

A woman was in line at the Giant grocery store in the 800 block of Muddy Branch Road on July 15 when she noticed a man staring at her, according to the Gaithersburg Police Department. The man followed her as she left and sprayed a liquid on her back.

Police determined the liquid was human semen.

Witnesses saw the man drive away in a gray vehicle, police said.

Authorities were able to use DNA in their investigation, News4's Jackie Bensen reported. 

Police arrested Michael Wayne Edwards Jr. Wednesday.

During their interview with Edwards, investigators learned the Giant victim wasn't the first, police said. Anyone who believes they've been a victim of Edwards should call police at 301-258-6400.

Edwards was charged with second-degree assault but could face more charges. He was released on $4,000 bond.
