A Norwalk man was arrested after being accused of inappropriately grabbing a store clerk.

At 11:52 a.m. Friday, an employee from West Side Sunoco at 288 W. Main St. went to the police station to report “being touched inappropriately” by a man whom she didn’t know, Norwalk police said.

“A male at the West Side Store was purchasing items,” Sgt. Michael Biller said. “When he was checking out, he made a comment on the clerk’s T-shirt and then, at that point, he reached over the counter and grabbed the clerk’s breast.”

After the man left, the clerk “was in shock” but soon went to the police station to report the incident, Biller said.

The woman told police she didn’t know his name. However, using surveillance video, police took a screenshot photo of the man and posted it on Facebook, asking for the public’s help in identifying him.

Within a couple hours that same day, Biller said, police were able to positively identify the man as Dwight Thompson.

Thompson, 27, of 2 Fifth St., was arrested Friday and charged with sexual imposition, a third-degree misdemeanor. He was unable to post a $3,000 bond and remained in the Huron County Jail as of Sunday evening.
