A Virginia man who previously pleaded guilty to squirting semen from a bottle onto women in stores is now accused of taking photos beneath a woman's clothing at a supermarket in Northern Virginia.
Michael Wayne Edwards, 33, of Centreville, was arrested Aug. 6, Fairfax County Police said Wednesday.
Police say a woman was shopping at a Safeway store on South Lakes Drive in Reston the afternoon of Aug. 5 when she noticed that a man was following her around the store.
The woman says that when she left the store, the man followed her to an area near Sunrise Valley Drive and Lakespray Way, and appeared to be videotaping her. He called out to her and then exposed himself to her before running away, police said.
The victim recognized the man as the same person who had followed her in the store, police said.
Officers identified Edwards as the suspect and worked with store personnel to investigate further. They say he filmed the woman under her clothing while she was shopping in the grocery store.
Edwards has been charged with filming nonconsensual nude (taking unlawful images of another without consent), simulated masturbation and indecent exposure.
