Cobb man accused of exposing himself inside Hobby Lobby

A Cobb County man allegedly exposed and fondled himself while following a customer in a Hobby Lobby store, according to police.

Wesley Harold Scott, of Austell, was inside the craft store on the East-West Connector late Friday afternoon when a customer witnessed the actions and reported it to police.

Scott allegedly followed the woman to the back of the store, and when she reached for items, he would expose himself behind her back, the arrest warrant states.

“When the female stood up and moved, the male turned away and walk to the next aisle to avoid detection,” the warrant states.

Scott was arrested near the store and charged with public indecency, according to police. He was booked into the Cobb County jail, where he was being held Monday afternoon on $10,000 bond, records showed.
