25-year-old Alex Chavez has been arrested on suspicion of lewd acts after being accused of groping an 8-year-old girl at a Target in Redlands, California.
The incident happened at the Target store on W. Lugonia Ave. September 6, 2019.
Alex allegedly went into the Target and headed directly to the toy section, where he contacted the 8-year-old girl.
After “briefly” speaking to the girl, he allegedly walked behind her and grabbed the child’s chest area.
The girl's mother then confronted Alex, who denied touching her inappropriately and left. Surveillance images helped detectives identify Alex as the suspect.
Alex had already been charged with seven counts in another case where he is accused of exposing himself to teenage girls outside a middle school last February.
Alex was located and arrested.
