Police: Man arrested after claiming to be podiatrist, sucking woman's toes at Walmart

LINCOLNTON, NC (WBTV) -

Police in Lincolnton say they have arrested a man who sucked a woman's toes at Walmart by claiming to be studying podiatry.

Michael Brown, of Concord, was arrested around 9 p.m. Thursday and charged with misdemeanor assault on a female. Officials say Brown is a registered sex offender.

Officers with the Lincolnton Police Department said the incident happened Monday around 11:15 a.m. when a man, who claimed he was a podiatrist student, started a conversation with a woman in the store.

That woman, Erika Porras, told police that he convinced her to try on several pair of shoes in the shoe department.

"At one point the suspect took the victim's foot, put it into his mouth and sucked the victim's toes," the report states.

"I was shocked," Porras told WBTV, "He asked me not to tell anyone and said he would pay for my groceries."

Since Brown's arrest, officers tell WBTV they have received calls from women in Rock Hill, Indian Land and Denver -- each claiming to have had a similar experience with Brown. Those claims have not been confirmed, according to police.

WBTV also caught up with Rebecca McBride in Monroe.   She says a man, who she believes looked just like Brown, approached her for help inside Kmart.

"He went on to tell me he was studying reflexology and he noticed my feet and how nice they were," McBride said. "He started examining my feet, taking pictures and video of my feet, until he started to sweat and shake and it was my cue to go."

McBride said, even after she walked away, the man was not willing to give up.

"He actually came back and reproached me and asked if I would go to the shoe department and try on shoes," McBride told WBTV.

Police said they are looking into whether or not the man who approached McBride was Michael Brown. They have not confirmed that it was Brown.

A judge ordered Brown to appear back in court on April 10. He is being held on a $50,000 bond. 

Anyone with information about the case should contact Detective Dennis Harris at the Lincolnton Police Department 704-736-8900 or by contacting Crime Stoppers 704-736-8909.
