Officers were sent to the store on E. Market Street around 10 p.m. Tuesday.

The victim told police that the suspect walked into the store, came behind the counter and grabbed her, saying he was going to “engage in sexual activity with her,” according to a police report.

The woman said she ran away, and she, along with a customer, began yelling at the suspect. The man then left the store.
