Loudoun County Sheriff’s deputies arrested a 23-year-old Sterling man in four cases where authorities said he inappropriately touched women at stores in the area.
Meredith S. Wyatt was charged with five counts of simple assault.
Authorities say that on May 14 Wyatt went into a women’s bathroom stall at Dulles Town Center, where he reached into another stall and inappropriately touched a 62-year-old woman. He then fled the bathroom.
In another incident on May 30 around 11:30 a.m. at the shopping center, authorities say Wyatt reached underneath a bathroom stall and grabbed a 16-year-old girl. He left after the teenager screamed.
Authorities say Wyatt also assaulted a 57-year-old woman on May 25 when he grabbed her from behind as she walked in the 200 block of West Holly Avenue.
At a grocery store in the 22300 block of South Sterling Boulevard, Wyatt also allegedly started talking with a 27-year-old woman and “inappropriately touched her from behind” when she walked away, authorities say. The victim confronted him and he then touched her again, according to the sheriff’s office.
Wyatt is being held at the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center on no bond.
