On separate occasions involving three different female store employees, Colon asked for assistance while standing near the men’s fragrance section of the store. In each instance, he expressed interest in a fragrance that was on the bottom shelf of the showcase. As the employee reached for the item, Colon moved close behind the employee and rubbed himself against her. Each woman noticed Colon was sexually aroused. In one instance, Colon touched
the employee six or seven times.
The Sheriff’s Office was notified after one of the employees mentioned her encounter with Colon to the others and they related a similar experience with him and concluded the touching was not accidental. They were able to obtain a license plate number for Colon’s vehicle before he left the parking lot.
Colon was arrested Wednesday by the Sheriff’s Office Fugitive Apprehension Team.
