MADISON, Wis. -

A 10-year-old Pardeeville girl told Madison police she was touched by a stranger while she and her mother were shopping at an east-side grocery store on Friday afternoon.

The girl said she was following behind her mother at a short distance as they shopped at Hy-Vee at 3801 E. Washington Ave., when she felt the man's fingers on her clothing and then a tug. She said she yelled for her mom.

The mother told police she confronted the man and he quickly left the store.

The man is described as black, with a lighter complexion, in his 50s, 6 feet tall and weighing 200 pounds. He was wearing a dark winter stocking cap, blue jeans, dark boots and a letterman-style jacket with a red or maroon body and black sleeves. There was black lettering on the front of the coat.
