A Fairview Township man faces charges after police say he exposed himself to two Dollar General employees earlier this month.

When police called Kurt Allen Hocker to speak about the alleged incident, he immediately told police he was recently charged with exposing himself in Lower Allen Township and that he hopes it didn't happen again, court documents state.

Fairview Township Police say he was not yet informed of the type of investigation when he mentioned his charges.

Hocker, 26, of the 500 block of Big Spring Road, faces two counts each of indecent exposure, open lewdness and disorderly conduct.

 

Incidents: Police were called to the Dollar General at 99 Lewisberry Road on Dec. 7 for a report of a customer exposing himself, court documents state.

Police say Hocker was walking around in a sweatshirt and pajama pants, and that he smirked at a employee while in an aisle at the store.

She looked back at him and saw that his penis was exposed through the front of his pajama bottoms, court documents state.

The woman did not confront Hocker, police said, but she felt "extremely uncomfortable."

Hocker then showed up again an hour later and exposed himself again, this time to another employee, according to court documents.

He asked the employee where the peanut butter was, and she showed him before returning to the counter, documents state. Police say he made his purchase and she observed his exposed penis through the front of his pajama bottoms, police said.

The employee never acknowledged that Hocker exposed himself, court documents state. Police say he looked back at her as he exited the store.

Investigation: Detective Jason Lotier watched surveillance footage from the store on that day, and he recognized the man who exposed himself as Hocker, according to officials.

"The video clearly shows Kurt Hocker approach the register with his penis exposed through the front of his pajama bottoms," Lotier wrote in charging documents.

Lotier spoke to Hocker on the phone and told him that Hocker's name recently surfaced during an investigation and he would like to meet with him.

"He immediately said that he was recently charged with exposing himself in Lower Allen Township and hopes it didn't happen again," Lotier wrote.

According to police, Hocker said that if it did happen, it was accidental. 

Lotier never told him what type of investigation was being conducted while he was talking to Hocker on the phone, court documents state.

Police later spoke to Hocker in person, and he admitted to being the person in a photograph from the store that day, officials said. Throughout the interview he denied intentionally exposing himself, police said.

Online court records show Hocker faces charges of indecent exposure and disorderly conduct from an Oct. 4 incident  by Lower Allen Township Police. 

He does not yet have an attorney for his York County case. A message left for his attorney in his Lower Allen Township case was not returned last week.

His preliminary hearing is scheduled for Jan. 17 at District Judge Scott Gross' office.
