Waynesville police continue to look for a man they say tried to sexually assault an 11-year-old girl inside a Walmart. Officers say the girl got away by doing the right things like saying "No" and running to her mother. Police say the man was in the Walmart between 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. Saturday. He came and left with a woman, but in between built a hide-a-way in the back of the store. Investigators say he tried to lure the girl behind the boxes to sexually assault her, but she knew to say "No" and find a trusted adult. An organization called "KARE" teaches these lessons to kids at Haywood county schools often reading from a book called "Some Parts Are Not For Sharing."KARE" says in more than 90% of these cases, the suspects are people that the children know. "KARE" also educates parents to reinforce safety rules to their children at home.Police say as soon as a report was filed Saturday, they pursued all leads to catch the suspect without alerting him. When that proved unsuccessful, they released the surveillance video Monday which is providing tips. If you have any information on the man or the woman in the video, call Waynesville police at 828-456-5363.By Rex HodgeRelated Links:Walmart Child PredatorAttempted Assault On Child, Suspect Wanted
