CRIME STOPPERS CRIME OF THE WEEK 11-09-12: POLICE SEEK SUSPECT FOR INDECENCY WITH A CHILD
A child is touched inappropriately by a man in a public restroom who then flees before an officer can catch him,
Crime Stoppers “Crime of the Week.”
On Friday afternoon, October 5th, 2012, about 1:00 PM, a woman shopping at Walmart, 9441 Alameda, let her 3-year-old son enter the public men’s room because the women’s room was closed for cleaning. The mother waited outside the door and, after a few minutes, called loudly to ask if he was finished. She called twice and got no answer; so she entered the restroom and found the suspect standing behind her son with his hands on the child’s hips. The suspect immediately fled from the store.
An officer who was in the store on another matter, responded immediately; and the child reported that the suspect had touched him. The mother told the officer that the suspect seemed to be “slow” mentally. As seen in surveillance video, the suspect appears to be a heavyset Hispanic man, possibly in his 30’s, with black hair, wearing a dark blue t-shirt with a small logo on the front and a large round logo on the back, blue jean shorts, and black high-top shoes with white socks.
