In a Crofton Goodwill store, a manager said he called police after a woman told him a man showed her child pornographic pictures on his cell phone late last week.

The man and the victims left the store before police arrived on scene. Police believe the man has done this at least one other time at the same store and worry he may have done it many times before.

The man is known to frequent many of the Goodwill stores in Anne Arundel County.

"I generally bring my grandson and he knows where the toy section [is] and he loves to go to the toy section while I'm sort of looking around," said shopper Betty Tucker. "He's 8-years-old. It just bothers me that somebody could possibly approach him."

No one was in custody as of Monday afternoon.
