TEMPE, Ariz. -

Police in Tempe say they're trying to identify a man suspected of groping women in grocery stores around the city in recent weeks.

During all three incidents, police say the man approached women from behind and grabbed their buttocks.

Authorities say all three incidents occurred at Fry's grocery store locations in Tempe: Rural and Southern; McClintock and Baseline; Guadalupe and McClintock.

According to police, after grabbing the women, the suspect leaves the store.

The last time the suspect grabbed a woman, people saw him and chased him into the parking lot. He got away, but not before surveillance cameras captured some photos.

Take a close look.  They say the man was wearing a black T-shirt with a spider on the front during two of the three incidents and was wearing a baseball hat with an "A'' on it during all three incidents.

So far, he's struck from mid-morning to mid-afternoon.

The concern for police is that if this man is not stopped, the attacks may escalate into something worse.

Fry's is aware of the grocery store groping and told us, "We want customers to be safe and if there's aberrant behavior, we want police involved and we will help in any way we can."

If you have any information about this case, call Tempe police or Silent Witness.
