Police say a man has assaulted multiple women inside stores by grabbing their behinds.

Phoenix police said the man waits until the woman is in a specific part of the store "and her attention is diverted" and then walks up to them from behind, grabs their buttocks and then runs out of the store.

Between Jan. 7 and 24 there have been at least five incidents reported to police.

Police released a surveillance photo of the alleged suspect on Thursday in a Facebook post.

He is described as an African-American man, 6 feet tall and 200-220 pounds.

Anyone who recognizes the man is asked to call Phoenix police at 602-262-6151.
