Walmart Perv Plea

NOVEMBER 5--In a plea deal, a Florida creep who was spotted “masturbating on the back” of a woman shopping with her son in the toy aisle of a Walmart has been sentenced to 15 months in state prison, records show.

During a Circuit Court hearing Wednesday, Elias Flor, 21, pleaded no contest to a felony child abuse charge in connection with the vile act at a Walmart in Winter Haven in December 2019.

Pictured at right, Flor was originally charged with lewd and lascivious behavior in the presence of a child under the age of 16. Flor copped to the lesser child abuse count. As part of a plea agreement, prosecutors dropped a misdemeanor battery count.

Upon completion of his prison term, Flor--who was taken into custody following his plea--will be placed on probation for three years. He was also ordered to pay about $900 in fines and court costs, and he will have to undergo a psychosexual evaluation.

According to a Winter Haven Police Department report, Flor approached the victim from behind while she was shopping with her 12-year-old son. Flor “unzipped his pants, pulled out his penis,” a police affidavit reported. Getting to within an “arm’s reach” of the woman--who was “facing away from him shopping”--Flor masturbated until he ejaculated “on the pants of the victim (onto her buttocks).”

As this was happening the woman’s son “attempted to alarm his mother.” The boy then explained what he had seen, prompting the victim to contact Walmart workers.

After police released store surveillance photos of the suspect (seen above), Flor, who lives a few miles from the Walmart, turned himself in and reportedly admitted to masturbating in front of a child while in the store. The battery count, cops noted, was filed since the victim did not give Flor “permission to ejaculate on her.” (3 pages)
