A Delaware man was arrested Tuesday after police say he followed a woman around a Walmart store and threw a handful of his own semen on her legs and buttocks.
Frank J. Short Jr., 22, was charged with harassment, disorderly conduct, lewdness and offenses touching of another with saliva, urine, feces or other bodily fluid, police documents obtained by the Smoking Gun show.
The incident began Tuesday afternoon, when the 20-year-old female victim stopped into a Walmart store in the town of New Castle. The woman told police she was standing in an aisle sending a text message when Short walked past her and said, “Excuse me.”
When he passed, the woman felt something wet on her buttocks and legs, and looked down to find what she described as a “glob” of fluid.
Fearing for her safety, the woman contacted store security, who called 911. When police arrived, they interviewed the woman and arrested Short, who was still milling about the store.
Questioned by the police, Short first stated that he had a cold and had simply “sneezed into his hands, then shook his hands off.” As their interview continued, however, Short changed his story, telling police he had spit into his hand and threw it at the woman while pretending to “slap her ass,” as he thought she was “hot.”
The police report concludes that Short threw his semen on the woman “because he was sexually attracted to her.
