A man accused of sexually assaulting a Target employee played a role in his own capture after he signed his name on a customer service card.
Roswell police arrested Ira Davis on April 2. The alleged assault occurred six months ago.
According to a police report, Davis walked into the store on Holcomb Bridge Road on Oct. 10 and began talking to the woman in the electronics department.
Davis, police say, began touching the woman inappropriately and whispering sexual comments into her ear. He then grabbed her arms and told her she was “drop dead gorgeous” and “sexy,” according to the report.
“(The woman) made it clear in her statement and while speaking with me that the man forced these actions upon her and it was clearly unwanted,” Officer J. Zettler wrote in his report.
As he left the store, police said Davis left a comment card saying the victim “did great” and signed his name, which tipped off officers to him.
Sandy Springs police arrested Davis on an outstanding warrant after a suspicious person call, Channel 2 Action News reported. Authorities have not said why Davis was arrested six months after the alleged assault.
He remains in the Fulton County jail on a sexual battery charge and a probation violation for theft.
