Toms River police are searching for a man who they say followed an 8-year-old girl around a Dollar Tree store, then came close within her personal space and exposed himself by holding his genitals in his hand.

“The girl’s aunt observed this and immediately confronted the man, who then fled the store,” said Toms River police spokesman Ralph Stocco.

The store is located at 1358 Hooper Avenue, and the incident occurred Nov. 6. Police released surveillance images Wednesday.

“The images are not the best quality but given the nature of this incident and age of the victim we still hope to be able to make an identification of the suspect,” said Stocco.

Anyone who has information should contact Detective Thomas Grosse at 732-349-0150 extension 1263 or send a private facebook message to https://www.facebook.com/tomsriverpolice.

    Never trust someone who wears sunglasses in a Dollar Store. Fluorescent lights are not bright enough to warrant the need for them.

    We need to bring back public executions for tree jumpers like this. The more violent, the better.

    Gregory S. Rittman, 49, was initially arrested on Friday after authorities received a report from an employee at the McDonald’s addressing lewd behavior that was witnessed by an 8-year-old juvenile. The behavior happened near the sink in the men’s bathroom of the restaurant, according to the MCPO.
