An unknown man allegedly entered the boy's stall and touched him in northwest Houston

Houston police say they need your help finding a person of interest wanted for questioning in a child indecency case.

Newly-released surveillance photos show a man pushing a baby stroller on May 13 at a store on FM 1960 West near Cutten Road.

Police say the man was at the store the same time a 9-year-old boy became the victim of a predator.

More than five weeks later and police have not been able to make an arrest.

The boy was allegedly in the men's room when an unknown man entered his stall and then touched the victim inappropriately. The boy reportedly ran out of the restroom and hid under a water fountain as his mother was inside the women's restroom.

A spokesperson for Target says they are actively working with law enforcement telling us, "At Target our guests are at the center of everything we do and our commitment to creating a safe and secure shopping environment in our stores is unwavering."

The person of interest is described as a white or Hispanic male, about 5 feet 7 inches to 5 feet 10 inches, and with a medium build. He was last seen wearing glasses.

If you have any information on this case, call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS. Your tips will remain anonymous.
