A 20-year-old Tulsa man is in jail after police say he sexually harassed a Walmart employee then peeped in the women's bathroom.

Joshua Dakota Traub was arrested by Owasso Police on complaints of sexual battery, peeping Tom and obstructing an officer.

Police say Traub was in the Owasso Walmart at 12101 East 96th Street North just after 11 p.m. when he approached a female maintenance worker pushing a trash bin down an aisle. Traub spoke to the woman, asking her about her job and if she would be at the store if he returned later.

The woman told Traub she was engaged, and he seemed annoyed, saying "Oh, well, good for you," according to the victim's statement.

The woman started walking away when Traub apparently delivered a "smack to her buttocks," according to the arresting officer Joshua Goins.

Traub was then caught on video opening the door to the women's bathroom, stepping in and looking, the arrest report states.

The 20-year-old Tulsan ran from the store and was captured by Owasso Police. Officer Goins said Traub gave incorrect answers during booking and said he had a physical handicap of being hungry.

He reportedly told police he was suicidal, asking "Yeah, now what is that going to get me?" He changed his answer after being informed of procedures for suicidal subjects, the officer said.

Traub was being held Saturday morning on a $3,000 bond.
