The Harris County Sheriff's Office is asking for your help locating a man they say inappropriately touched a 12-year-old girl at a Walmart.

Deputies say it happened at the Walmart off the East Sam Houston Tollway near Wallisville Road.

According to investigators, he followed the girl and her mother through the store on July 31st. When they stopped to look at clothes in the aisle of the women's section, officers say the suspect brushed past the girl, squeezed her behind and walked away.

The mother reported the incident to the store.

Investigators are concerned the suspect could become more bold and move on to fondling children.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic man between 150 and 160 pounds. He was last seen wearing a blue shirt and blue jeans.

"There's a lot of bad things going on now. You need to be careful to see who's walking around your children," said Daisy Trevino, a mother and customer.

If you have any information on the suspect, you're asked to call the Harris County Sheriff's Office.
