Police in Illinois claim that a 44-year-old man they arrested last week for allegedly caressing the bare feet of unsuspecting female college students is a “serial” offender with a foot-fondling past.

A Naperville, Illinois, police spokesman tells PEOPLE that Omar Carlton of Aurora faces four counts of battery and four more for disorderly conduct after he’s alleged to have rubbed his own bare feet across the toes of four women as they studied in North Central College’s library.

Carlton’s arrest report claims he “made contact of an insulting and provoking nature with all four” victims and that this “intentional, prolonged contact” was unwanted.

Carlton was also charged with violating the terms of his bail and criminal trespassing during his Oct. 8 arrest, the spokesman says. Police claim Carlton had been banned from the school’s grounds years ago after being accused of similar offenses.

His alleged victims had taken off their shoes to study, the police spokesman explains.

Carlton is being held in DuPage County Jail in Wheaton, Illinois, on $10,000 bail. He has not yet entered a plea.

The police spokesman adds that last week’s arrest was actually Carlton’s fifth for unwanted foot touching. The four previous cases were all disposed of in court.
