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:

“Anyone with possible suspect information or who might have seen this encounter is asked to contact Crime Solvers electronically by visiting http://www.fairfaxcrimesolvers.org or text a tip to ‘TIP187’ plus your message to CRIMES(274637)** or by calling 1-866-411-TIPS(8477), or call Fairfax County Police ay [sic] 703-691-2131.”

Virginia Target stores have had other run-ins with molesters. In one case last year, police arrested a man dressed as a woman in Virginia after police say he was caught peeping into restroom stalls three times in the past year.
