CHARLOTTE, NC (FOX 46) - The hunt is now on for a brazen attacker accused of sexually assaulting a teenage girl in a local Walmart parking lot.
"Oh my goodness, I actually don't know what to say," one resident said.
The attack reportedly happened at the Walmart located off Wilkinson Blvd. Sunday evening.
"To me, I would say a person like that doesn't have a good head if they're picking up a 17-year old," another said.
It wasn't just the attempt of picking up a 17-year-old. The unknown man is also suspected of exposing his genitals to the teenager and then tried to kidnap her.
Shoppers in west Charlotte said its 'a sign of the times.'
"But now, I would worry about it because people are crazy," a resident said.
Some said it's a shame that they're questioning what should be a simple trip to the store.
"I know for a fact I don't come over to this side of town in the evening time," a resident said.
No arrests have been made at this time. There have been more than 20 reported crimes at the Walmart Shopping Center off of Wilkinson Blvd. in the past month. The crimes range from theft, fraud, and vandalism to two cases of assault.
FOX 46 Charlotte has reached out to CMPD for a description of the suspect and a possible vehicle description.
