A Grantsville man, John M. Richards, 37, is facing multiple charges for an incident at a Spencer coin-operated laundry on December 6. Police said Richards entered the business and ordered a lone female to sit in a chair, after which he exposed himself, made sexual comments and masturbated himself.

Richards was identified from a composite drawing provided by the victim. She later identified the man in a line-up.

Richards is in North Central Regional Jail in Doddridge County on charges brought against him in Wood County, a six-month sentence for indecent exposure and fleeing. That sentence was handed down one day before the current warrant was issued.
