    CHEROKEE COUNTY, Ga. - Police want to question a man about accusations of public indecency at a busy Walmart in Cherokee County.

    A security guard told police the man was following female customers around the store performing lewd acts earlier this week. He left before police could confront him.

    Channel 2's Tom Regan was at the busy store, where police showed him pictures of the man from the store's surveillance cameras. 

    "The gentleman looked suspicious as he was wandering through the store and they identified him as up to something," Pacer Cordry with the Canton police said. "Loss prevention noticed he was fondling himself through his clothing, while he was following females through the store."


    So far, police said they have not received complaints from shoppers. They are urging shoppers to be on the lookout at all times and be around of their surroundings.  

    Canton police are also asking the public for help to identify the man and are asking anyone who has had contact with him to contact them.

    Regan talked to shoppers, who said it's a little unnerving.

    "Honestly, it makes me scared," Brittany Wheeler said. "I hope they find whoever that is. That's awful."
