Police are asking for the public's help after a young girl claimed she was groped at the West Edmonton Mall wave pool Saturday afternoon.

The pre-teen girl told her parents she was grabbed in the groin and pointed out the male suspect who took off when he was approached.

Police say the suspect, who was wearing dark swimming shorts, is white, 25 to 35 years old with short, dark hair and a scar or bald spot on the back of his head.
