    A clothing store employee has been arrested for indecent exposure and lewdness after approaching two juvenile females.

    19-year-old Neury Estrella Melendez of Hampton, New Hampshire, was taken into custody without incident at Mad Maggie's clothing store at 243 Ocean Blvd. on July 2.

    On June 24, two girls reported that while shopping at the Hampton Beach store, they were approached by a store clerk that tried to lure them into a back room to look at merchandise.

    They reported that the man was touching his genitalia while flirting with them and asking for hugs.

    The juveniles were able to leave the store and contact police.

    While police on scene were investigating the incident, an unrelated 14-year-old girl left the store and told authorities that a similar incident just happened to her inside the store.
