An 18-year-old Yukon man was arrested for dropping his pants in front of female shoppers at an Edmond grocery store, Friday afternoon.

Edmond Police arrested Jason Stuart of Yukon shortly after 1 p.m. Thursday after receiving a call about a man flashing female shoppers at the Super Target store located at 2nd and Bryant.

The victims told police that they were in the women's section of the store when Stuart approached them, dropped his pants and made a comment about his underwear. That is when the shoppers noticed he was wearing pink women's panties.

The caller gave dispatchers a description of the suspect's vehicle and tag information, which they obtained as Stuart exited the store.

Officers stopped a vehicle fitting the description in the 1000 block of Broadway, soon after receiving the initial call. Inside the suspect's vehicle police found a backpack that contained women's underwear.

Edmond Police say this is one of many similar incidents that have been reported at that Target store. Each of the other times, the suspect managed to leave the area before officers arrived. Police did not say if they believe that this suspect is responsible for the other incidents.
