WEBSTER GROVES, MO (KTVI) - Webster Groves police are trying to locate a man who reportedly touched a teen in a Walgreen’s parking lot.

The family of 14-year-old girl said she was sitting in a parked vehicle Saturday afternoon at the Walgreen’s on the 8500 block of Watson Road. Her mother was inside the store.

The alleged suspect entered the driver’s side of the car and reached for her arm. The teen then ran inside the store to seek help.

Police described the suspect as a Caucasian man in mid-to-late 50s, tall with a thin-to-medium build, with blonde or light brown hair. He was said to be wearing glasses, a grey skull cap, a green jacket over a red t-shirt, and possibly brown pants and black sandals.

His getaway vehicle was described as possibly a white, silver, or light grey SUV.

The teen’s parents said their daughter was unharmed, but understandable rattled by the incident.

Walgreen’s has surveillance video of the alleged suspect but the images have not been released yet to the public.

The parents said they will meet with Webster Groves police again Thursday. They were told the suspect might have used a credit card at the store before the alleged incident occurred.
