SANDY, Utah (ABC 4 Utah) - The search is on for a man accused of sexually assaulting a young girl shopping at a Sandy Target store. Police need your help to find him.

Take a good look at surveillance video captured of a man as he walked out of the Super Target at 10130 S. State Street in Sandy. Police said he sexually assaulted a teenage girl.

"He groped the 14 year old and then quickly walked out of the store," said Sgt. Dean Carriger, Sandy Police Department.

Back on August 7th, the girl was shopping there with a friend around 4:00 p.m., that's when police said a man started following them.

"…and after a short period of time he grabbed their cart stopping them, engaged in conversation for about a minute then reached down and groped the 14 year old juvenile," said Carriger.

Police said the man is white, in his mid thirties or even older, and is heavy set. They believe left in a white pickup truck.

"…that appeared to be a Dodge 1500 4-door newer model," Carriger said.

So far police don't know who he is or where he went, but they're worried he'll do it again.

"This is a very blatant incident with other customers in the store, (it) gives us concern that it might occur again and we would like to identify this individual and apprehend him before that can occur," said Carriger.

If you recognize the man or his truck, call police. You have three ways to reach them.
