By WRCB Staff
DALTON, WHITFIELD COUNTY, GA (WRCB)--After another incident reported to police on Tuesday morning, the Dalton Police Department is releasing new images of the suspect in a series of parking lot groping incidents that occurred in and around Dalton.
Tuesday morning's incident occurred at approximately 9:30 AM Tuesday morning at the Wal-Mart at 2545 East Walnut Avenue. After walking around in the store, the suspect left the store and walked across the parking lot towards a woman who was walking in the parking lot. He asked her if he could ask her a question. When she stopped and said yes, he asked her if he gave her $100 would she show him her breasts. The woman told investigators that she ran away, and remembering news coverage of the previous groping incidents, she contacted the Dalton Police Department.
The suspect is described as being in his early 20's, between 5'7 and 5'9. In this morning's incident he was wearing khaki pants and a navy blue polo-type shirt. The suspect's hair is shaggy and hangs down almost into his eyes. After reviewing surveillance video from the store, investigators believe it is the same suspect from the previous incidents. The suspect was recorded driving away in a burgundy or maroon colored SUV.
Images from the store's surveillance system of the suspect and his vehicle are included with this release. Anyone with information on these incidents or the identity of this suspect is asked to contact Detective Greg Bates with the Dalton Police Department at 706-278-9085, extension 137.
