Police were called, and they arrested 48-year-old Tod Stolting as he tried to flee the area.
The victim says she is outraged after learning that Stolting is a level 2 sex offender, that he lives nearby, and that he has at least a dozen arrests including pouncing on a young girl.
It turns out that Stolting has spent very little time in jail.
He was on probation when the alleged assault occurred.
The victim credits the staff at Target for responding to her cries and pointing police in the right direction.
As she recovers from the shock of it all, she told Eyewitness News she will now be directing all her anger towards making sure this predator doesn't strike again.
