Over the last month 9News has reported about multiple reports of men touching, watching and trying to lure young girls at stores all over the Tri-state.
Tonight detectives in Warren County are warning people to look out for another suspicious man who approached a teen inside a Target store in Deerfield Township.
Detectives said in this case the man did not try to touch the girl or lure her away but call his behavior inappropriate.
Surveillance video of the man detectives said approached a 16-year-old at the Deerfield Township store was obtained.
They said he identified himself as a Target security guard and told her he needed to check her purse for stolen property.
He then told her he did not work for the store but had coupons for massages and manicures.
The girl refused his offer, drove home and told her mom who called the sheriff's department.
"This young lady was approached and he tried to make her believe he was a security officer which leads us to believe he was trying to get girls to trust him because he said he's a security officer," said Detective Greg Callahan, Warren County Sheriff's Department.
Police describe the suspect as a white male, 25 to 28-years-old, 5'8" to 5'9", medium build, short reddish brown hair with a mustache and goatee.
He was wearing blue jeans and a black and blue sweatshirt.
