Eventually, the man approached the woman from behind and pushed his body up against her backside, while grabbing her in multiple areas with clear sexual motivation.

Afterwards, the man calmly left the store.

Witnesses told police the man got into the rear passenger side door of a black or blue four-door sedan.

The car then left the parking lot, likely heading north on Highway 99.

The man is described as a white male, between 35 and 45 years old. He’s about 5 feet and 7 inches tall, with brown eyebrows and green eyes. He wore a two-colored beanie hat, face mask, white shirt, dark shorts and light-colored sneakers with dark laces.
