Madison officials are asking people to help them identify a man wanted for questioning in an alleged sexual assault that occurred at Wal Mart, Eatonton Road.

According to Madison Police Department reports, a 55-year-old woman told authorities that sometime between 9 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. on July 2 she was shopping in the sheet and comforter aisle when an unknown black male wearing a jersey shirt and jeans approached her from behind. The woman alleged that the man “pushed himself into her (rear)” and then made a lewd comment to the woman.

The woman said she told the man to leave her alone and walked to the checkout area. She checked out, reports state, and then spoke to a person in customer service regarding the incident.

An officer reported that he reviewed the company’s surveillance video and the video confirms the woman’s account of the incident.

Reports state the suspect left the store in a dark color Honda Accord.
