Police in South Carolina, released a photo of a man who turned himself in after he exposed himself to a young girl in Walmart.

Charleston police said that the suspect was not a resident of the area.

57-year-old Ernest Adrian Larch of Somerset, Kentucky, surrendered to police with his lawyer.

The investigation began when a woman alerted a Walmart employee about an incident involving her 4-year-old granddaughter.

The woman said that her granddaughter was looking at the items in the toys' section while she was in another aisle.

When the grandmother went to check on the girl, she saw her speaking to a stranger. When the man saw her, he quickly left the store.

The woman questioned her granddaughter, and then informed a Walmart employee of the incident and police were called.

Larch was booked into jail and is being held on $35,000 bail.
