GASTONIA, N.C. -- For the second time in a little more than a week, police in Gastonia are investigating a case of indecent exposure in a popular store's parking lot.

On Friday, a woman called authorities complaining she saw a man masturbating in the parking lot of the Walmart on North Myrtle School Road.

The woman claimed she saw the man touching himself in his car on two occasions.

The incident comes on the heels of a similar complaint at the same Walmart earlier this month. In that case, a woman reported she saw a man expose himself.

The description of the suspect in both cases is similar, reports a spokesperson for Gastonia police.

Police have not yet determined whether the two incidents were done by the same person.

Also this month, Gastonia police arrested a man in a Target parking lot for a similar act.
