TYLER — A 24-year-old Jacksonville man was issued two Class C Assault citations by Tyler police this week for groping the buttocks of two separate women during incidents at two different East Texas stores.
“If he had grabbed them in a more sexual part of the body we could have charged him with a higher offense," Tyler Police Spokesman Don Martin explained Friday.
Martin said in one of the incidents, Chaz Aaron Sansone was caught on tape grabbing the rear end of a woman at the Walmart on Troup Highway in the Tyler area around 6 p.m. Oct. 22. Authorities determined Sansone also was the same person who groped a second woman at an area Target store.
Martin said the assault was no laughing matter.
"It really looked on that tape like he was stalking that girl," he said.
