REDDING, Calif. - A Girl Scout who was selling cookies at the Redding Walmart Saturday was assaulted by a stranger.

It happened just before one in the afternoon.

The Scout was with several other troop members and their parents at the time.

Redding police said after a brief interaction, the man inappropriately touched the ten-year-old girl and then quickly walked away eastbound on Dana Drive. He is described as a 50-60-year-old Hispanic man of medium build with gray hair and beard. He was last seen wearing a gray and black jacket and jeans.

The RPD and the CHP searched extensively but didn't have any luck on Saturday, so they are asking anyone with information to contact the Redding Police Department.
