Santa Ana police sought the public’s help Wednesday to find a man who allegedly molested a girl in a Goodwill store earlier this month.
The incident occurred at about 4 p.m. July 2 in the 2700 block of West Fifth Street, according to the Santa Ana Police Department.
Police circulated security images of the suspect, described as 20-30 years old, 5-feet-10 inches to 6-feet tall, with a medium build and short brown hair.
“The suspect approached two separate juveniles while inside the Goodwill store,” police said in a statement.
“He touched one of the juveniles on the buttocks, over her clothing while retrieving merchandise off the display shelf,” police said. “He later positioned himself behind the second juvenile with his hand directly behind her buttocks. A customer witnessed his actions and yelled at the suspect, preventing him from touching the second victim. The suspect became verbally aggressive and fled on foot.”
Police believe the man, last seen walking south on Fairview Street, frequents the area. Anyone with information on the identity or whereabouts of the man was urged to call police at 714-245-8426.
