At a Big Lots in Houston, Texas, a woman, who did not wish to be identified, was groped twice and followed the man outside to video tape him and confront him about it.
It all started when a man came up behind the woman, who was in the store shopping, and grazed her behind. She figured it was just an accident, so she let it go. She started hearing him mumbling to himself, making her feel uncomfortable, so she moved away from the back of the store.
But, it happened again. She felt his entire hand grazing her bottom, like a rub, and it shocked her when she realized that was no accident and it was him again.
The woman told a cashier and the manager about the incident, but she saw the man leave the store, so she hurried to follow him outside and turned on her cellphone camera.
In the video, you can hear her saying, “You don’t need to go around the store like an idiot fondling women,” as she followed him on the sidewalk.
He kept walking away from her, as she pressed on, refusing to back down by asking him, “Why did you do that?”
He charged at her, cussing, and she said, “Don’t you touch me!”
He responded to that by saying, “You better get the f*** away from me!” and then eventually saying “I’m ’bout to kill you.”
She said, “You better not!” as he charged at her again, stole her cellphone, and ran off.
She ran back inside Big Lots and called the cops. Less than an hour later, Harris County police officers arrested the man, who they identified as Jerry Higgins. Higgins is charged with criminal mischief and robbery. This was the third time Higgins has been charged with criminal mischief.
The woman said she got her phone back and had the last laugh when she recorded video of deputies detaining him.
