    I don’t get this. If we don’t know where the assault happened in Broad Daylight – I *really* don’t get why they don’t tell us what store lets children get assaulted – and we don’t know what this sick POS looks like, how are we supposed to tell what contact we’ve had with him?

      Not sure that you need his description to make use of this alert, since they’re not trying to capture him. If you or your child was assaulted, call the police. If the guy matches the description it’ll get added to his tally. If it’s a different guy it’s useful to know that there are several child abusers roving around the metro area.

      How do you know the store “let” children get assaulted? There are plenty of less-trafficked spaces inside the DCUSA stores where this can go unnoticed.

      Stores do not “let” children get assaulted, and I have a hard time believing the store would be at fault for such an occurrence unless they willingly employed a convicted sex offender. There are MANY places this could have happened at DCUSA, it could have been at Children’s Place, Chick-fil-a, Modell’s, the play area – anywhere. But yes, I agree, a descrition would be very helpful here, and where is the surveillance video?

    I’m assuming Target, but I think it is important to mention there is a kids indoor playground space at DCUSA. I’m assuming this didn’t take place there. Because if it did. Damn.
