The police department in Holly, Michigan released CCTV footage of the incident on their Facebook page on Monday, asking for the public’s help in identifying the man.

The assault took place on Saturday, May 2 at the Dollar Tree on North Saginaw Street, Holly. The man was wearing a checked shirt, dark glasses with dark pants, and entered the store at around 1.30 p.m.
