Crawfordville, Florida - August 25, 2011 -
A 21-year-old Crawfordville man was arrested for stalking and exposing his sexual organs to a female victim in the parking lot of Wal-Mart last week.
Jashua Juane Hicks was arrested Aug. 24 and is in the Wakulla County Jail awaiting his first appearance.
“A female victim reported that Hicks followed her around the store into several different departments as well as to the check-out line,” said Major Langston. “When the victim confronted Hicks she went to another check-out area and he followed her there. She returned to a third check-out area and spoke to the clerk about being followed and Hicks left the store.”
The victim paid for her purchases and was putting her goods in her vehicle when Hicks drove up and approached her again and began speaking to her while he exposed himself. She reported Hicks to store management who helped identify the suspect. Detectives presented the victim with a photographic line-up of possible suspects and she identified Hicks as the man following her.
The WCSO has received additional information about Hicks following other female victims in Crawfordville. Anyone who may have been followed or approached by Hicks is asked to call the Wakulla County Sheriff’s Office at 745-7100 and speak to Detective Erika Buckley.
