Original Release:

On 11-08-2014 at about 2:20 p.m., an adult male approached a two year old girl in an aisle of the Costco warehouse located at 1600 El Camino Real Highway in South San Francisco. The man approached the child from behind, looked at her, patted her head, and then stated, “Come over here” while making a circular motion with his right hand. The child’s mother was within 15 feet of the child when this occurred and when the suspect noticed her, he immediately walked away from the child. The man later exited the store without purchasing anything.
