Police: Man charged with harassing gas station clerk after making her mixtape CD


From The Morning Call:

A 45-year-old man thought a Monroe County gas station attendant had the hots for him, so he reached into his pants and said he had a present for her: a 20-song mixtape CD, state police said.

The gesture creeped out the gas station attendant, who called police on a report of sexual harassment on Wednesday afternoon, state police at Lehighton said.

Police charged Robert S. Perry, of Saylorsburg, with harassment and disorderly conduct and ordered the wannabe Casanova to stay out of the Sunoco on Route 115 in Saylorsburg.

The clerk told police Perry entered the store with no intentions of buying anything. In the store, he told the attendant he had a present for her and reached into the front of his pants and gave her the CD, which had 20 songs he recorded for her, police said.

Perry walked out of the store and police were called. Police were able to identify Perry and went to his home.

Perry told police he made the CD because he thought the attendant was attracted to him, police said.
