The man was allegedly caught on surveillance video committing the act in a store in the 2300 block of West Tustin Street on Oct. 3, police said.

A 13-year-old girl, who didn’t want to be identified, told KTLA the man approached her, exposed himself and engaged in lewd behavior.

“He actually skimmed my back,” the teenager said. “He walked in front of me and he rubbed up against me. I thought in my mind that couldn’t be happening.”

Her grandmother, who only wanted to be identified as Julie, was shopping just a few feet away.

“All of a sudden she comes up to me and she’s pale, she’s sweating and shaking… saying ‘grandma we have to get out of here,’” Julie said.

Julie reported the man to Walmart employees, but said they did nothing to stop him from leaving the store.

“I see him walking down the main aisle and he turned around and smiled at her and I,”  Julie said.

The man was also seen on surveillance video in the parking lot getting into a silver 4-door compact car, similar to a Honda Accord, police said.

Anyone with information was urged to call the Orange Police Department at 714-744-7444.
