Police are searching for a man who they say groped three young boys at a Philadelphia Grocery Store.

The first alleged groping happened last Saturday at 12 p.m. at a Espejo Grocery on the 4000 block of North 8th Street in the Hunting Park section of the city.

Police say an unknown man grabbed a 6-year-old boy’s buttocks before fleeing the scene.

The second alleged incident happened Monday at 3:45 p.m. at the same grocery store. Police believe the same suspect groped an 8-year-old and 9-year-old boy who were together at the time. He then once again fled the scene, according to investigators.

An employee tells NBC10 she was never informed of either incident and didn’t see anything. The employee also claims the store currently has no surveillance cameras because they were destroyed in a fire.

The suspect in both incidents is described as a bald Latino man in his 40’s. He was last seen wearing black glasses, a green shirt and blue shorts, according to police.

If you have any information on either incident, please call Philadelphia Police.
