COLUMBIA — Police said a Columbia man was charged in multiple sexual misconduct cases after he was arrested for exposing himself at a store on Wednesday, according to a Columbia Police Department news release.

Zebulun Ore, 33, exposed himself to a 19-year-old woman by pulling down his pants inside Target at Columbia Mall, the release stated.

Ore then ran out of the store into the mall. Columbia Police Department officers searched the mall area for Ore and found him in the parking lot. He drove away before they could arrest him; however, they were able to get his license plate number, according to the release.

Ore was arrested Wednesday at his residence at 1310 Essex Court.

According to the release, Police have been investigating similar incidents of a man exposing himself to women inside retail businesses. After photo line ups, Ore was identified as the suspect in five other such incidents that occurred between Nov. 22 and Dec. 8, according to the release.

Ore has been charged with:

  • Five counts of sexual misconduct in the second-degree;
  • One count of assault in the third-degree;
  • One count of careless and imprudent driving.
