THOMASVILLE, N.C. — Thomasville police have arrested a man who committed a lewd act on a woman Tuesday at a Dollar General store, according to a news release.

Lee Curtis McNeill Jr., 25, of 408 Salem Street, Thomasville, has been charged with two counts of felonious indecent liberties with a minor, two counts felonious indecent exposure, and sexual battery.

On Tuesday at about 6 p.m., McNeill came to the police department and turned himself in after seeing himself on the news.

The 28-year-old female victim told officers a man brushed up against her in the checkout line she was standing at with her two children, ages 6 and 7. The victim said she realized the suspect had ejaculated on her.

Thomasville police reviewed the store’s surveillance video from Monday, which showed the suspect masturbating and then making contact against the victim.

The suspect left the area before the victim realized what happened, a release said.

McNeill received a $100,000 secured bond and was placed in the Davidson County Jail. His court date is set for Nov. 30.
