A registered sex offender is accused of inappropriately touching a girl after she stopped to help him use a DVD-rental machine.

The girl and her mother told Gloucester Township Police that the girl was leaving the Walgreens on Black Horse Pike in Glendora, N.J. around 1:15 p.m. on Sept. 29 when an older-looking man asked her to show him how to use the Red Box machine outside the store.

As the girl helped him out, the man reached over and rubbed her midsection while making a comment, according to police.

The girl told police that she pulled away, told the man not to touch her and ran to her vehicle in the parking lot.

Police began to investigate the incident and eventually identified the suspect as Vincent Kerr, 46, of Blackwood, N.J.

Police discovered that Kerr was a registered sex offender on the state’s Megan’s Law registry after dragging an underage girl into a wooded area in Ocean County in 1994. He also had a prior incident where he broke into a woman’s home and sexually assaulted her, according to Megan’s Law records.

Police recently arrested Kerr and charged him with harassment for the most recent alleged incident.

Investigators asked anyone who recently experienced a similar type of incident to contact Gloucester Township Police at 856-228-4500, call the anonymous tip line at 856-842-5560 or send an email to police.
