ABERDEEN, Md. — Aberdeen Police are searching for a man wanted for groping a female employee at an Aberdeen Target store on Monday morning.

According to police, the man approached the employee for assistance with scanning merchandise. As the woman reached to scan the item, the man used his hand to grope her in a sexual manner.

The employee fled the area after being inappropriately touched.

During the investigation, detectives were able to determine a similar groping incident happened two weeks ago to another female employee. Although the groping was unreported, detectives say the description of the groper matched the man in the surveillance video.
