A West Virginia man has been charged with a uniquely perverse form of sexual assault.
Timothy D. Blake, 28, was arrested for assaulting a series of women in Marietta, Ohio, reports the Daily Mail.
Blake has allegedly admitted to following women around a Walmart and spraying them with a syringe containing his semen, reports the Parkersburg News and Sentinel. There were reportedly 12 such incidents over a two-month period.
According to the criminal complaint, one woman noticed a “creepy man” following her around the store, and then noticed something wet on her backside and went to the bathroom to clean it off. When she emerged from the bathroom, the suspect was staring at her.
When Blake left the store, the victim followed him and made note of his vehicle, which enabled police to identify and locate him. He was later arrested at a restaurant while eating dinner with his wife.
“It’s not something that we’ve encountered before and after we arrested Mr. Blake, we asked him about it, and he said it was something that he had discovered on the internet and decided to try it,” Sheriff Mincks of the Washington County Sheriff’s Office told WTAP.
