FAIRFAX CO., Va. (WUSA9) -- Another victim has been added to the groper's list of victims.
Fairfax County tally's the total at 24.
But this time he chose a very public place where he was nearly caught.
Police say it happened in broad daylight at 3 Thursday afternoon inside HomeGoods at the Kingstowne Shopping district near Alexandria.
Shoppers of the discount home furnishings store say they are keenly aware of how the groper walked right in and claimed his 24th victim.
Joni Wauhop, Shopper, "I think he's getting more and more bold. That's crazy. You wouldn't think he'd go into a public place with so many people. I thought he was sticking to neighborhoods. It's about time they catch him though."
A 31-year-old woman was shopping inside HomeGoods Store, when police say the so called 'Springfield Groper' attacked her and ran.
