Police search for man who sexually assaulted 2 girls at Burlington Coat Factory

ONTARIO, Calif. -- Ontario police are looking for a man who sexually assaulted two young girls in a store on two separate occasions last month.

The suspect is accused of walking into the Burlington Coat Factory at the Ontario Mills mall, luring a 5-year-old girl away from her parents and sexually assaulting her on Oct. 9.

Police say the same suspect committed a similar assault at the same store 20 days later.

"Someone like this should be considered a predator and could be seen doing this at other locations," said Sgt. Bill Russell with the Ontario police. "That's why we want to get the word out."

The suspect was believed to be driving a 1980s or 1990s model white Honda Accord.

Anyone with information is asked to call Ontario police.
