VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. - Police are investigating an assault that took place at a Food Lion location in Virginia Beach.

According to police, the alleged assault took place at a Food Lion on Princess Anne.

Officials say a woman was standing in the check-out line when a man approached and stood directly behind her. They say he pressed his groin against her buttocks while looking down at himself. When confronted, he claimed he was reaching for something, left the line, and fled the store.

The suspect has been identified by police.

Police believe his actions were clearly portrayed as intentional. It is believed that the man frequents the area and shopping center around this Food Lion.

Now police are asking if there are other females who feel they may have been a victim as well to contact the police.
