A Graceville man has been arrested and charged after allegedly exposing himself to a woman in the parking lot of a convenience store in Holmes County.

According to a press release from the Holmes County Sheriff’s Office, deputies with that agency responded to the Friendly Mini Mart on Highway 79 in Esto around 10:30 p.m. Wednesday, June 26, in reference to the incident.

The officers were able to identify the alleged offender as 31-year-old Christopher Joseph Prine of Graceville, authorities say.

The alleged victim advised Prine “had propositioned her while exposing himself in an obscene and lewd fashion but rode away on a bicycle after she told him she was calling law enforcement,” officials said in the release.

It was determined that Prine had committed a similar offense earlier that same day in the parking lot of the Dollar General in Esto, officials say. Deputies were able to locate and arrest Prine on two charges of indecent exposure.
