A man has been charged with exposing his genitals last spring while working at a Yukon retail store.
A Yukon Police investigation led prosecutors on Feb. 6 to formally charge Donald Willard Clutts, 80, with indecent exposure in Canadian County District Court.
If convicted of the felony crime, Clutts faces a maximum $20,000 fine and/or up to 10 years in prison.
The charge stems from an incident that allegedly occurred on May 24, 2019 at the Walmart Supercenter, 1200 S Garth Brooks Blvd.
Clutts violated state law “by willfully, knowingly and lewdly exposing his genitals” at the Yukon Walmart store where people were “offended and annoyed by the behavior of the defendant,” according to court documents.
Allegations against Clutts are detailed in a Yukon police incident report signed by Sgt. Zach Bradford.
The officer met at the police department with the alleged victim’s mother, “who advised she was using the photo kiosk at Walmart, which is located in the back of the store near the back public restrooms.”
“(S)he said she observed through the reflection in the glass, an older male touching himself after saying inappropriate things to her one-year-old daughter.”
Clutts approached the mother, made an inappropriate comment and said “Hey look at this” while manipulating his private parts on the outside of his clothing, according to the police report.
The woman then obtained a mobile phone video of Clutts touching himself inappropriately through his pants’ zipper and committing other indecent acts in front of alleged victims, the report shows.
Sgt. Bradford reviewed security video from Walmart, which he said started at 2:16 p.m. and went on for nearly 20 minutes.
The criminal case against Clutts has been assigned to Canadian County District Judge Jack McCurdy.
