Mom claims Walmart shopper inappropriately touched child

PORT ST. LUCIE, FL (WFLX) - Port St. Lucie police are looking for a man who allegedly grabbed a 9-year-old girl's butt twice at a Walmart.

The girl's mother told police her daughter was shopping in the toy section of the Walmart on Gatlin Boulevard with her grandmother when a man touched her butt with "an open handed grab," according to police spokesperson Tom Nichols.

The mother said the man passed behind her daughter several times before he grabbed her. Initially, the girl said she thought it was an accident. However, the girl's mother told police the same man grabbed the girl again just moments later.

Police said the man drives a white van, possibly a Chevy Astro cargo van from the late 1990s to early 2000s.

Police are asking anyone who recognizes the suspect or knows any information about this incident to call 772-871-5000 or Treasure Coast Crime Stoppers.
