Police are concerned a man who “inappropriately touched” a young boy may strike again.
On Wednesday, police called for witnesses to help find a man who indecently assaulted a teenage boy at a Sunshine Coast supermarket the previous week.
Detective Senior Sergeant Phil Hurst from the Sunshine Coast child protection unit said that the nature of the alleged assault was particularly concerning for police.
“The assault matter we are investigating is of such a nature that there would be concern he poses a greater risk to the community,” he said.
“It was an assault within the public area of the shopping centre, quite a brazen assault.”
A 13-year-old boy was at a supermarket on Main Street at Buderim on January 21 when he was “inappropriately touched” by a man believed to be in his late 60s about 10.30am, police said.
It is believed the older man was shopping with an elderly woman at the time of the alleged assault.
The man is described as Caucasian in appearance and was wearing glasses, an orange shirt and grey shorts at the time of the alleged assault.
Police have released CCTV images of a man they seek to question, plus a vehicle believed to be linked to the assault.
Anyone with any information relating to the assault are urged to call CrimeStoppers on 1800 333 000.
