    Police in Westchester County say a man followed a 7-year-old girl into the toy section at Wal-Mart, and then inappropriately touched himself in front of her in another part of the store.

    The girl was shopping with her mother on Saturday at about 6:45 p.m. in the White Plans Wal-Mart, when the mom went to check out electronics and the girl went to the toy area.
    After she was alone, the man approached her and led her to another part of the store where he committed several "inappropriate sexual acts," police say. The girl was not touched.
    He fled the store.
