Arrest in Walmart Groping Case

(Valparaiso, IN) - A 59-year-old Valparaiso man is accused of groping himself at a Walmart store. Kirkland Conn is charged with public indecency.


According to police, an officer was called to the store in Valparaiso on reports of a man fondling himself while making eye contact with other individuals. Conn left before the officer arrived, but a vehicle matching the description of the one he left in was spotted on U.S. 30 and pulled over.


Conn told the law enforcement officers that he was scratching an itch and adjusting himself inside the store. However, a store worker said the man was groping himself in front of a customer.


Employees also identified Conn as the same person accused the previous week of groping himself and following a female customer around the store.
