A 65-year-old Cartersville woman Monday, Sept. 23, was leaving Walmart just before 2 p.m. when she was approached by a man who offered to help her, Sheriff Clark Millsap said in a news release.
"As she was backing from her parking space, she was approached by a white male who told her that she had a flat tire," the release says. "He offered to change it for her and she allowed him to do so.
"While changing the tire, the man made several sexual comments causing her to feel uncomfortable. When the tire was changed, he attempted to continue to talk to her and she backed out and left."
After having her tire checked at a local tire store, the woman found that the valve stem had been removed from the tire, causing it to go flat. She then filed a report with a Bartow County Sheriff's Office deputy.
The deputy and Walmart management reviewed security video, which showed the man who had helped the woman had parked just after she did, and while she went inside shopping, removed the valve stem and waited for her to return.
Anyone who can identify the man shown on Walmart security video should call the Criminal Investigations Division at 770-382-5050, extension 6030.
