The Dover Police Department responded to Target on Thursday, January 24th at approximately 9:15 am for a report of a man masturbating in a fitting room with the door open, according to M/Cpl. Mark Hoffman, Public Information Officer.

Hoffman said the department had also responded to the same location on Saturday, January 19th, when the male suspect had committed the same act in a fitting room with the door open and fled in a gold Jaguar after leaving the store.

Based on surveillance footage from Saturday’s incident, officers believed the suspect to be Lewis Foreman, 23. Foreman once again fled the store in a gold Jaguar prior to police arrival. Believing Foreman was the suspect, officers checked the area of the Manchester Square neighborhood, where it was believed Foreman was staying in the Unit Block of Stevenson Drive.

Foreman arrived in the gold Jaguar at Stevenson Drive, where officers attempted to stop him. he then fled on foot from officers, entering a residence through a rear door and hid in the attic with Tyra Mifflin, 20, leaving a 3-year-old child alone in a bedroom, said Hoffman.

A short time later, Foreman and Mifflin surrendered to police without incident. The Dover Police Department then executed a search warrant at the residence and located 3,972.6 grams (approximately 8.75 pounds) of marijuana (in heat-sealed bags), digital scales, packaging materials, and $4432.00 in drug proceeds in the home, according to Hoffman.

Keyarra Johnson, 29, arrived at the residence while officers were on scene and was also taken into custody without incident.

The 3-year old child was placed in the care of a family member of the suspects.
