Woman reports disturbing incident at Chamblee grocery store to police

The Chamblee Police Department is reporting that a man allegedly ejaculated on a woman at the Whole Foods store at 5001 Peachtree Boulevard near Clairmont Road in Chamblee on May 11.

"Horrified and enraged. Just no words. Disgusted," said Dr. Sabine Lovell, a plastic surgeon. 

According to the police report, officers responded to the store shortly before 3 p.m. 

Lovell says she stopped in the Whole Foods Market on Saturday after her workout just to pick up a few things. "I see this gentleman walking down the aisle who's pretending to be shopping and he's holding a basket, and he looked kind of like a normal gentleman, like late 20s, early 30s, nothing like extra suspicious about him." 

The victim told them that she was bent over in the chip aisle when a man approached her from behind.

She says as she reached for a bag of chips, she felt something on her back. "I bent over to grab the chips and as I was doing that, I felt something like wet and warm on my back, and so I put my hand on the small of my back and then I saw that it was like this gooey, white substance, and I turn around and I see this guy looking at me, and then he zips his pants up." 

When she felt something wet, she initially thought someone had spilled something on her. However, after she touched it, she realized it was semen.

The victim immediately began chasing the man, yelling at people to stop him. 

Lovell tells FOX 5, once she realized what happened, she chased the man, then called police. "I wanted to draw as much attention as possible to the situation so that there would be a lot of witnesses." 

The man exited the store and ran towards the gas station across the street.

"This was broad daylight on a Saturday. I'm sure he's done this before or this could escalate to something more like rape or murder, so I want to make sure that this goes on his record and it follows him," said Lovell.  

The victim described the man as Black, 5-feet-11-inches tall with short to medium-length black hair. He was thin and had silver glasses. He was wearing a navy zip-up jacket with a hood and dark washed jeans. The victim told police that his feet pointed outward when he walked.

A witness told police they saw the man get into a black Kia Niro and took a photo of the license plate. Chamblee police have been using the Flock system to look for the car.

Police also said they reviewed the security camera footage from the store, and it appears to corroborate the victim's account of the incident.

A representative for Whole Foods Market says they are cooperating with the police investigation. 

Anyone with information about the man should reach out to Chamblee police
