    A man waiting outside a South Main Street convenience store early Wednesday morning exposed himself to a female customer, asked her for a cigarette, then punched her when she refused his request, police reports stated.
    Everett Clyde Elliott, 27, Camp Creek Parkway, was charged Wednesday with battery and public indecency after the incident at the GATE convenience store on South Main Street, according to an incident report by Statesboro Police Officer Mary Bowen.
    The 23-year-old victim, a woman who told police she did not know Elliott, said she walked out of the store around 4 a.m.  and Elliot "exposed himself to her," according to reports.
    Then, he asked her for a cigarette. When she said no, he apparently became angry at her rebuff and physically attacked  the victim, punching her in  the eye twice, Bowen said.
    Someone called police, and when Bowen arrived at the scene, she spoke briefly with the victim and Elliot before taking him into custody, charging him with public indecency and battery.
    Elliott remained at the Bulloch County Jail Wednesday night, although a $2,000 bond had been set, according to jail records.
