Police: Five Below employee exposed himself to girl, 12
A Five Below employee is accused of exposing himself to a 12-year-old girl while working at the store in early January, according to police.
West Manchester Township Police say Kyle Joseph McClure-McLucas, 27, exposed himself to a 12-year-old girl while she was shopping with her mother at the 1245 Carlisle Road location on Jan. 9.
McClure-McLucas, of the first block of Carlisle Avenue, York City, is charged with indecent exposure.
Incident: According to police, the victim and her mother were shopping in the store about 5 p.m. Jan. 9.
McClure-McLucas approached the girl in one of the aisles and asked her if she needed help, charging documents state.
McClure-McLucas' shirt was over his pants, and police say he moved his shirt, exposing his zipper, which was open. When he did that, he also exposed his penis, court documents allege.
Additionally, police say, the victim's mother noticed that her daughter was unable to tell McClure-McLucas what she wanted when he asked her what she was looking for.
McClure-McLucas was not initially aware the victim's mother was with her at the time, officials said.
Police tried speaking to McClure-McLucas later, and when he was told what they would be asking him about, he declined to speak with them, charging documents state.
David Makuen, executive vice president of marketing for Five Below, said in an email that McClure-McLucas was suspended without pay immediately after the company was made aware of the alleged incident by police.
The company is fully cooperating with West Manchester Township Police, he said.
Charges were filed Monday, Jan. 29, and McClure-McLucas was arraigned on them that day. He was sent to York County Prison in lieu of $5,000 bail, online court records indicate.
His attorney, Heather Reiner, declined comment when reached Monday, Jan. 29.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled for March 6 at District Judge Keith Albright's office.
