Man pleads guilty to accosting women near Phoenix

PHOENIX - A man accused of accosting several women in the Phoenix area last year has pleaded guilty in the case.

Maricopa County prosecutors say 23-year-old David Talkington pleaded guilty Tuesday to two counts of sexual abuse, kidnapping and indecent exposure.

His sentencing is scheduled for June 6.

Authorities say Talkington lives in an unincorporated area of Maricopa County near Scottsdale.

He originally was accused in the attempted abduction of a woman jogger in Scottsdale last May.

Talkington later was accused of accosting several women in parking lots.

In one reported incident, police say Talkington allegedly threatened a woman by saying he'd blow them both up if she didn't show him her breasts.

Police say the woman took down his vehicle's license plate number and later identified Talkington in a photo lineup.
