Man performs lewd act in McKinney store

Posted: Updated:

McKinney police are looking for a child predator they say approached a girl at a store and performed a lewd act.

The incident occurred at a Target last Friday in McKinney.

Police say at 10-year-old girl was not near her mother when the man went up to her and patted her on her backside. He also, reportedly, whispered in her ear, "you're sexy."

"He was definitely observing her throughout the store and waited for that right moment," said the girls mother who does not want to be identified.

"She was extremely upset, crying, shaking all over extremely distraught. I tried to explain to her that we needed to find who this person was so this doesn't happen to another child, and that he wasn't trying to find another child in the store," said the mother.

Police say surveillance cameras caught the man a few aisles over performing a lewd act. After talking to her daughter, the mother reported the incident to Target staff and they looked for the man. Security cameras showed the man entering and leaving the store.

Police are asking the public to contact them if they recognize the man in the camera footage.

Police say he appears to be in his 60's with a long gray ponytail and a distinct walk.

The mother of the young girl says she's glad the man didn't physically hurt her daughter. She said she knows she's doing the right thing by sharing their story.
