OREM — A man is in jail after exposing himself to a child at the Orem Wal-Mart Sunday evening.

The 12-year-old girl was shopping with her family at the store at 1355 S. Sandhill Road and was walking through the toy section alone when she noticed a man following her, said Orem Police Lt. Doug Edwards.

The girl later said she had an uncomfortable feeling so she went to the girls clothing section, but the man followed her.

He then unzipped his pants and exposed himself to the girl, Edwards said.

She screamed and ran to her parents, who called police and told the man to stay there until police arrived.

The 31-year-old man was questioned and arrested by Orem police officers, and he was booked into the Utah County Jail for investigation of lewdness, Edwards said.

The man's legal status is also being investigated, Edwards said.
