Police: Penn Twp. man exposed himself to girl at Walmart
- Police say a Penn Township man exposed himself to a young girl at a Hanover Walmart in April.
- Brian Floyd, 47, is charged with corruption of minors and indecent exposure.
A Penn Township man told police that if his genitals were exposed to a young girl at a Hanover Walmart in April, it was an accident, police said.
He told them this one month after police say the man also exposed himself at a Maryland Walmart.
Hanover Borough Police say Brian Keith Floyd, 47, exposed himself at the Hanover store on April 17, but the girl wasn't able to identify him until after he was arrested in Maryland.
Floyd, of 706 Hartman Ave., is charged with corruption of minors and indecent exposure.
Walmart: Police were sent to the Walmart at 495 Eisenhower Drive at 8:15 p.m. April 17 for a report of a man exposing his genitals to a 9-year-old girl, documents state.
According to police, the girl told her mother about it after they left the store, and the girl's mother called police.
Video footage of a suspect was obtained by police from Walmart, and it showed Floyd leaving in a car registered to him, documents state. A license photo of him compared to the video also confirmed Floyd as the suspect, according to police.
In early May, Floyd was arrested in Anne Arundel County, Maryland, and charged with indecent exposure. According to a release from Anne Arundel County Police, Floyd exposed himself to another 9-year-old girl at the Walmart in Glen Burnie on April 30.
The victim in that case identified him, and he was charged with indecent exposure there, according to police.
When news reports of his Maryland arrest came out, the victim in the Hanover case said he was the same man who exposed himself to her, documents state.
On June 2, police spoke with Floyd, and he admitted he was the same person in the Walmart but denied the allegations, according to police.
"Brian Keith Floyd denied the allegations and claimed if his penis was exposed it was an accident and he did not realize it was exposed," police wrote in charging documents.
Hanover Borough Police filed charges against Floyd on June 13, and he was arraigned Friday, June 16, according to online documents. He was released on his own recognizance.
Floyd's attorney Steve Rice said Friday his client intends to plead not guilty and go to trial.
His preliminary hearing is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. July 6.
