Butt-Grabber Linked to Fourth Attack: A Squeeze Inside a Gilbert Target Store

The man who has grabbed the butts of three women inside Tempe grocery stores has been linked to a fourth attack.

Police in Gilbert and Tempe are now working together on the case, as a fourth woman has come forward, detailing her run-in with the butt-grabber at a Target store in Gilbert.

At first, it seemed like the guy was partial to various Fry's grocery stores in Tempe, where the initial attacks took place.

After media coverage of those attacks, the fourth victim came forward. Tempe Police Sergeant Michael Pooley says she was grabbed at the Target store on the corner of Warner Road and Val Vista Drive in Gilbert.

On two occasions, the guy was wearing a black shirt with a spider on it, and police say he wore a baseball hat with an "A" on it during each attack (in our opinion, it looks like an "LA," as in the Los Angeles Dodgers logo).

Here's the new surveillance still:

There isn't much of a description of the guy, or his vehicle, which was described as a "newer SUV," silver in color. Cops suspect he's in his 20s, Hispanic, and has an average height and weight. Police ask that you call them if you know anything.
