Police say 43-year-old Jeffrey Wise entered the store at 4700 North 27th Street in Lincoln Tuesday morning, walked up to an employee of a photography studio inside the store and hugged her.
Then he gave her a compliment she considered inappropriate. That led to him grabbing her breast and trying to kiss her.
Police say the victim does not know Wise, but she recognized him as the man who often stands near the store’s entrance holding a sign asking for money.
Since 2007, Wise has been arrested 128 times for illegally soliciting money from a right of way. This was his first arrest for sexual assault.
