A man has been arrested after allegedly groping three women in two locations in west Phoenix. 

Phoenix police report that on Monday night an officer stopped 20-year-old Aldair Mellin Severiano after he allegedly groped three women. 

Police say Severiano said, "excuse me" before groping the first woman at a grocery store near 43rd Avenue and McDowell Road. 

He then ran away, going to a drug store across the street where he reportedly grabbed another woman. 

He was still in the same store when he asked a worker for "skin care products, " and when she turned around, he grabbed her as well. 

Police caught Severiano as he came out of the store.

He was arrested for sexual abuse.
