The child told her mother that the male behaved in an indecent manner towards her. He was seen to turn around with his hands in front of his pants, join the checkout line, then leave the store.
At about 4.25pm on Monday, 24th December 2012, the same male approached a nine year old female child in the same store and behaved in an indecent manner in front of the child. The male was confronted by the child’s mother and stopped his behaviour before walking off.

The father of two was bludgeoned to death – most likely with a steel bar from a dumbbell that was found to be missing from his unit – on the evening of Friday 16 January 2004.
The murder weapon has never been located.
The 49-year-old was last seen alive that afternoon and his body was found early on Monday 19 January.
While there were no signs of forced entry or a disturbance in the unit on Denton Street, Hendon, a neighbour told police he heard an altercation at the rear of the property about 7.10pm involving two men arguing loudly.
Mr Hawkins’ flatmate told police the pair went to bed about 8pm and later he heard a disturbance outside, and they investigated but found nothing and returned to their respective bedrooms.
The flatmate also said he left the unit just after midnight and spent the weekend at a friend’s home. When he returned to the Hendon unit on Monday morning he found Mr Hawkins dead in the living room.
A suspect has been identified but there is insufficient evidence at this time to charge them in relation to this matter.
A $200,000 remains on offer to anyone who provides information that leads to a conviction in this case.
It is never too late to speak up and share what you know.

Russell Bradshaw was last seen by his wife leaving their Salisbury Heights home in January 1992.
The 35-year old left without taking any of his personal possessions and without telling anyone where he was going.
He was believed to be involved in the local drug scene, but it is not known if this played a role in his disappearance.
Russell’s disappearance is not consistent with his usual behaviour as he always maintained contact with his friends and family including his children.
In February 2004, police coordinated an unsuccessful search of scrub land near Perponda in the Murray Mallee as it was believed this may have been where his body had been buried.
He is suspected to have been murdered and his murder is believed linked with the disappearance and suspected murder of Damian Cauchi in 1998.
A reward of up to $200,000 is on offer to anyone who provides information that leads to the conviction in the case and/or the recovery of the victim’s remains.

Schoolgirl Heather Turner spent Friday, 16 January 1998 with her friend Kali Edmonds at Semaphore Beach.
The teenager planned to walk home to Largs Bay, meet a friend, and then return to Kali’s house.
She somehow ended up at a home in Ashton Rd, Davoren Park, with a group of between four and eight people aged in their 20s.

A fortnight later, on 31 January 1998, Heather’s body was discovered partly submerged in a creek at Port Gawler.
Investigators believe that the group of people Heather saw that evening hold the key to solving her murder.

While she was fully dressed in what she was last seen wearing on Friday 16th January 1998, her distinctive shoulder bag – a Tweety Bird bag – has never been recovered.
