A man accused of grabbing the behinds of at least five women at Phoenix grocery stores is behind bars, according to Phoenix police.

The suspect was identified as 26-year-old Isiah Leon Snow. He was arrested and booked into jail on assault charges on Saturday, Feb. 13, said Officer James Holmes, spokesman for Phoenix Police Department.

Police say between Jan. 7 and 24 at least five women reported being victimized by Snow. He would allegedly wait inside the grocery store until a woman became distracted. He would then approach and grab her behind before running out of the store.

Police released a surveillance photo last month hoping someone would recognize him and identify him.
