McKinney police say they need the public's help identifying a potential child predator.
Police say just after 11 a.m. on June 28 a mother and her 10-year-old daughter were shopping inside the Target in the 2000 block of North Central Expressway when the girl says she was approached by a man who allegedly patted her on the buttocks and told her she was sexy.
The girl ran to her mother a few aisles over and her mother contacted a store employee but they were unable to locate the man, according to police.
Surveillance video doesn't show the incident the girl described because it was not in view of a camera, but police say the video did show the girl in the electronics section while the man watched her from the next aisle and police say it appears he was masturbating.
Police released video from the surveillance video as the man left the store. No information on the vehicle the man drives was available.
Police urge anyone who recognizes the man to call the McKinney Police Department at 972-547-2700.
