HOOKSETT, N.H. (AP) — New Hampshire police say a man faked a brain injury to get a nurse to change his adult diaper.

Hooksett police said Thursday that Eric Carrier is facing charges of indecent exposure and lewdness.

The 23-year-old is accused of pretending to have a brain injury to lure the woman to his home, claiming he needed help changing his adult diaper.

Police say more people have come forward to say he had taken advantage of them in the same way.

Police say Carrier placed an ad on Craigslist seeking home health care. Investigators say nurses would change his diaper, not knowing he was scamming them.

Carrier was arrested Monday and is scheduled to be arraigned Aug. 1. It's unclear if he has an attorney.
