HENRICO COUNTY, Va. (WTVR) - Henrico Police are looking for a man accused of sex assaults inside two West End stores. The victims, police said, include a 16-year-old girl and an adult woman.

The first incident happened on a Sunday afternoon inside Jo-Ann Fabrics and Crafts, along the 7500 block of West Broad Street.

"A sixteen-year-old juvenile female reported she was fondled from behind by a male subject while inside the store," Henrico Police spokeswoman Lt. Linda Toney wrote about the Nov. 11 incident.

The following afternoon, Lt. Toney said a man did the same thing to a woman inside a grocery story along the 7000 block of Three Chopt Road. That man was seen leaving the Martins parking lot on a white moped or scooter.

Police described the suspect in both incidents as a while man, 5’10”-6’0”, 130-150 pounds, shoulder length hair, wearing glasses.

Anyone with information is asked to call Henrico Police at (804) 501-5000 or Crime Stoppers at (804) 780-1000.
