LORAIN, OH (WOIO) -

A man is in the Lorain City Jail for public indecency after reports say he was he was masturbating at a thrift store on Monday.

According to reports George Garrett, Jr. was laying on the floor near the changing room of Our Thrift Shoppe on W. 21 St. in Lorain.  He reportedly approached two woman, whose mother was in the dressing room, asked if they were sisters and decided that was a good enough opening line to drop his pants and start masturbating.

The women said they were calling the cops so Garrett decided to shop a little more.  When he was eventually stopped by police, he told them he had an itch on his leg and could only get to the skin if he dropped his pants.

19 Action News checked into Garrett's past, and he has a lengthy criminal record which includes a previous conviction for public indecency .-
