Man suspected of groping two girls in San Bruno Target store

Getty Images File PhotoUPS deliveryman Glenn Albrecht was caught on Target's video surveillance groping two girls at the San Bruno store.

A man accused of grabbing the buttocks of young girls at the Target store in San Bruno last month had been wearing a T-shirt at the time that read, “Rub Me For Luck,” prosecutors said Tuesday.

UPS deliveryman Glenn Albrecht, 49, faces child molestation charges in connection with two separate alleged groping incidents Aug. 26 at The Shops at Tanforan. Both incidents were captured on the store’s video surveillance cameras, San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said.

On that day, prosecutors said, a 6-year-old shopping with her family wandered off to another aisle. In that aisle, she said, a creep grabbed her buttocks and fled the store.

When the child pointed out to her family the culprit — identified by prosecutors as Albrecht, Wagstaffe said — her father went looking for him and eventually punched him. At the time, the district attorney said, Albrecht was wearing a shirt that read, “Rub Me For Luck.” Target security detained Albrecht and he was arrested when police arrived.

A subsequent review of the store’s surveillance footage revealed that Albrecht also had touched an 11-year-old girl on the same day. That girl did not report the incident, Wagstaffe said, but investigators later identified and interviewed her.

“This victim described the defendant grabbing her buttocks with his hand,” Wagstaffe said.

During a search of Albrecht’s home, a life-size doll of a female child was found, Wagstaffe said. Also, investigators said he possessed child pornography.

Albrecht remains in custody on $200,000 bail. On Tuesday, the case was postponed to Oct. 30 for a bail hearing and to set a preliminary hearing date.
