A man who walked into a Peoria Dollar Tree on Monday afternoon wasn't interested in bargain shopping. Instead, police say, he inappropriately touched two young girl in two separate incidents.
The girls weren't at the store together but had apparently drifted away from each of their parents, who were also in the store.
Police grabbed images of the suspect from surveillance cameras.

The suspect is a white male, 25-35 years old, and was wearing a black Volcum T-shirt and khaki cargo shorts. The second man is a Hispanic male, 20-30 years old, wearing a black Adidas shirt and long jean shorts.
Anyone who recognizes these guys should call the Peoria Police Department's tip line at 623-773-7045.
