KERNERSVILLE, N.C. (AP) - Authorities have accused a North Carolina man of pushing his face into the buttocks of three different women in public.
The Winston-Salem Journal reports Kernersville police said 25-year-old Stefan Ryan Shuford is charged with three counts of sexual battery and three counts of assault on a female on the town’s main street.
A magistrate said Shuford was charged in a similar case two weeks ago, and was released on bail.
After his arrest Friday, police said they had received many reports of a man inappropriately touching women.
Shuford is in the Forsyth County jail with bail set at $55,000. A magistrate said it would ensure that the defendant’s release would not result in injury to anyone, destruction of evidence or witness intimidation. It’s not known if he has an attorney.
