NORTH ATTLEBORO — Police are looking into a report of a man who allegedly grabbed a teenage girl at the Emerald Square mall three days after Thanksgiving.
The alleged incident occurred at a store in the mall on Nov. 29 but was not reported to police until late Monday afternoon. It is unclear why it was not reported earlier.
Detective Sgt. Richard McQuade said the matter is under investigation.
The man is alleged to have followed a girl about 16 years old and grabbed her inside one of the stores before her older cousins, who accompanied her, pulled her away.
McQuade said the man’s intent was unclear and is one of the aspects of the investigation. The man had graying hair and was described as having a small build and medium height.
Surveillance photos of him were posted on the Mass Most Wanted website. Anyone who can identify him is urged to call police at 508-695-1212.
