Fairfax County police are searching for a man an 11-year-old girl says inappropriately touched her in a Target store.
In a press release, Fairfax officials said an 11-year-old girl reported that a man touched her bottom as she was shopping with her father on June 18 around 5 p.m.
Officials say that surveillance video proves the girl’s claims.
Police released a description; the molester was wearing a gray shirt and dark shorts. He may have left the store in a burgundy Ford Mustang:
