A judge has banned 19-year-old Mark Alexander Lyashevskiy from all malls in the county after he picked up his second indecent exposure charge on the parking lot of Hamilton Place Mall.

General Sessions Court Judge Gary Starnes also said the defendant did not qualify for a public defender.

Police said one of the incidents was Dec. 2 and the other Dec. 11.

In both incidents, female mall employees said they were accosted by Lyashevskiy when they were walking to their cars after getting off work.

In the first incident, a woman said she was walking toward her car when a man began making rude gestures toward her. She said she walked over to another row of vehicles, but he sped up his car and pulled up next to her.

She said he got out of his vehicle, ran over to her and exposed himself, while saying, "See, baby, get in."

The woman said he had a heavy accent.

In the second incident, an employee of Dillard's said when she was leaving work that a vehicle pulled up next to her and it appeared the driver was trying to get her attention.

She said she rolled down her window and the man said, "Can I ask you a favor?"

The woman said he then got out of his vehicle, came over to the driver's side, and exposed himself, while asking. "Have you ever seen a white ---- before?"

The woman said she drove to another section of the parking lot and went back inside the mall. She went back outside with a Dillard's manager.

Both women got the tag number and both picked Lyashevskiy out of a photo lineup.

Police said the resident of apartments at 4715 Bonny Oaks Dr. has lived here about four months and that he has been married seven months and has a five-month-old child. He works at an electronics firm, it was stated.

You’re Right With Lamar

One of Tennessee’s favorite sons, Davy Crockett, coined an oft-used phrase:  “Be always sure you’re right, then go ahead.” Being sure is quite important, but may be difficult in this election cycle. The Democratic nominee campaigning against Lamar Alexander is a man whose radio ads call for “change,” “fair” taxes and more jobs.  Sounds good, huh?   ... (click for more)
