Virginia Beach police say the security guard victimized a fellow employee. Now he is facing charges that, if convicted, could put him in jail for up to two years.
As a department store security guard at Lynnhaven Mall, it’s Darnell Florence’s job to catch criminals – but tonight Virginia Beach police say he is the criminal.
Investigators say Florence exposed himself to an employee who worked in the same store.
“He followed her into the dressing rooms and exposed his penis. And made some sort of sexual statement to her,” said Adam Bernstein, Virginia Beach police.
He also groped her earlier this week.
“Came up to her and grabbed her on the breast and made another sexual statement to her,” Bernstein added.
The woman’s manager contacted police and Florence was arrested.
Florence has been charged with indecent exposure and sexual battery.
Florence is employed by Securitas, a private security company in Virginia Beach.
