Police seek identity of suspected Walmart groper
A man who accosted a woman while she was shopping after midnight in the Wood Village Walmart on Friday, July 5, is shown on the stores video surveillance, said Lt. Steve Alexander, public information officer for the Multnomah County Sheriffs Office.
Now detectives are asking the public for help in identifying the man.
At 12:18 a.m. inside the Walmart at 23500 N.E. Sandy Blvd., a woman was browsing the DVD section when a man reportedly came up behind her and grabbed her buttocks with both hands, then pressed her up against a DVD display case.
The suspects upper body touched the back of the woman before he ran off through the store, according to the police report.
Detectives obtained video surveillance of the mans actions, including images of him leaving the store, which they hope will help locate the suspect.
Anyone who has information regarding this case is asked to call Multnomah County Sheriff Detective Ken Yohe at 503-251-2515.Add a comment
