RENTON, Wash. — Police on Thursday released pictures of a vehicle believed connected to the child groping and luring incidents at the Renton Walmart last Sunday, and police revealed the suspect also exposed himself to little girls the same day at a Walmart in Federal Way.

Police say the suspect was driving a silver 2002-2006 Ford Windstar or possibly Ford Freestar. Surveillance cameras captured his minivan in the parking lot.  (See photos).

The license plate is too blurry to make out from the surveillance shots.


Police are trying to identify the man suspected of groping a 10-year-old girl in the toy aisle of the Renton Walmart and trying to lure other children.

It was learned late Thursday that the suspect struck that same day — last Sunday — at the Walmart on 314th Street in Federal Way. Police said that after the Renton incident, the suspect apparently drove to Federal Way, where he exposed himself to two little girls in that store. He can be seen on surveillance video handing something to a little girl in the Federal Way Walmart and then looking back at her as if to try to lure her.
