(Scroll down for video) A teen who was accused of smacking women’s behinds in a public park, told police that he knew it was wrong, but he could not help himself, according to police in Delaware.

New Castle County Police said that they have arrested 19-year-old Tomiere Harris, in connection with multiple unlawful sexual contact incidents, which occurred in Glasgow Park.

Over the course of several months, New Castle County Police investigated the report of a 43-year-old woman being inappropriately touched as she was walking in the park.

The woman reported that the man smacked her behind.

In another incident, a woman was using a portable bathroom in the park when Harris opened the door and exposed himself to her.

A 59-year-old woman and 43-year-old woman were walking in the park when Harris grabbed their behinds.

Detectives obtained a search warrant for Harris’ residence, which is located in the 700 block of Townsend Pl, where they located evidence, implicating him in the crimes.

During police questioning, Harris admitted that what he did was wrong, but claimed that he could not help himself after seeing the women’s backsides.

Harris was charged with four counts of third-degree unlawful sexual contact, sexual harassment and second-degree indecent exposure.

He was arraigned and committed to the Howard Young Correctional Institute for failing to post a $4,200 cash only bail.
