A Utah man is facing felony charges after police say he exposed himself and started masturbating in front of two girls in the aisle of a retail/grocery store.

The incident happened back on August 23, but police didn't arrest the suspect, 53-year-old William Darrell Joyner, until October 15. It's unclear why it took nearly two months to arrest Joyner.

Court documents say Joyner Joyner first exposed himself to the girls, aged 10 and 12, before masturbating in front of them.

Joyner is a registered sex offender, and because of his criminal history, his lewdness charges are enhanced to felonies.

He faces two third-degree felony charges of lewdness involving a child by a registered sex offender.

Court documents did not give the name of the store in which the incident happened.
