JANESVILLE, Wis. (WMTV) -- The 50-year-old man who reportedly approached several women at a Janesville Walmart Supercenter last week and kissed them without warning was charged with child abuse – intentionally causing harm on Wednesday.

Robert M. Cicmansky turned himself into police Tuesday evening after police posted pictures, saying they were trying to identify him.

Authorities said the Rockford, Illinois man was pushing a cart through the Walmart Supercenter, at 3800 Deerfield Dr., around 9:30 p.m. when he approached the victims. He would reportedly start talking to them and at one point offer them money, before either kissing them or, at least, trying to.

The count, however, is not linked to the kissing, rather it stems from one instance where he allegedly slapped a 17-year-old employee on the buttocks.

Investigators added that he reportedly also asked if she was a virgin before trying to assure that he wasn't a pervert.

Cash bond was set at $500 in Rock County Court Wednesday. Cicmansky will be back in court on Dec. 13 for his competency hearing.
