    LINCOLNTON, N.C. - Tips poured in about a Concord man accused of committing a disturbing crime inside a local Walmart.

    Michael Brown told a judge he wanted to plead guilty after police said he sucked on a woman’s toes inside the store.
    The judge refused and decided to keep him in jail.

    Brown made obscene gestures and cursed at Channel 9 cameras after his court appearance Friday.
    He did stop long enough to deny the charges.
    In court, Brown asked if he could plead guilty to allegations of sucking a woman's toe in a Lincolnton Walmart.
    The judge said there wasn't enough information.
    She said police were not available nor was the victim.
    The accuser cried as she told Channel 9 she is still afraid of the man who she thought was a Walmart employee helping her try on shoes.
    He suddenly put her toe in his mouth.
    A woman who saw Channel 9's video from the Lincolnton Walmart said Brown approached her earlier that same day, wearing the same clothes at the Denver Walmart.
    She said he tried to get her to take her socks off for him, too, but she refused.
    Lincolnton police received calls from all over the Carolinas -- including Rock Hill, Indian Trail, Gastonia, Denver -- accusing Brown of similar cases.
    Police warn as strange as this case sounds, people should not forget Brown is a registered sex offender convicted of attacking a woman in her home at knife point in 2001. Any claims must be taken seriously.
    Brown was convicted of another case in a Walmart in Stanly County two years ago.
    Channel 9 found the warrant that stated he pulled a woman's sock off and took a picture of her foot.
    In the current case, Brown decided to represent himself in court.
