Miami-Dade Police are looking for a man they said sexually assaulted an eight-year-old girl inside a West Kendall store.
MDPD’s Special Victim’s Bureau said the girl was shopping with her mother when she ran into a man on an aisle that had his penis exposed. The girl turned to walk way, but police said the man touched her from behind with his exposed penis.
Dollar Tree store personnel in West Kendall are warning parents about the unidentified molester who is targeting the area.
“This is someone who is a danger to the community because that is one step away from this person will to commit any type of sexual battery, any type of rape,” said Detective Alvaro Zabaleta.
The crime is similar to one just a few weeks ago at the Dadeland Mall. In that case, a male suspect fondled a young boy’s genitals inside a major department store.
“This is what is so alarming to us because these incidents are occurring in the middle of the day, in broad daylight, not hiding,” said Robin Pinkard.
Police described the West Kendall suspect as being 40-50 years old, around 5’3” tall, thin, and with balding salt and pepper hair.
Police ask that if you can identify the suspect in the sketch to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS (8477).
