A man has been charged for sneaking up on women and assaulting them at a gas station, three separate times.
On July 21 at 5:45 p.m., a woman called police and said that a man, Bryan Ploughe, snuck up on her and touched her inappropriately while she was pumping gas at the Pilot Travel Center on Brick Road in South Bend.
On August 26, a second report was made from the same gas station.
The second victim told police that when she was leaving the gas station, Ploughe touched her.
She then chased him to his car and the manager of the station took a picture of his license plate.
ABC 57 News reports that Ploughe came back once more, on August 30, and assaulted a third victim, while she was pumping gas.
Around 7:30 p.m. on August 30, he was arrested and admitted to touching the women.
He has been charged with rape and sexual battery.
