BECKLEY, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Police have arrested a man they say molested young girls while they shopped inside a Beckley department store.

Detectives say Henry Duncan, 35, approached girls inside the Kohl's on Eisenhower Blvd. and touched them inappropriately.

They say at least three victims under the age of 18 have come forward about the incident.

"Their parents notified the staff of the store, and staff members attempted to stop him," Detective Morgan Bragg said. "At that point, he fled from the store."

Duncan was later identified through surveillance pictures and was arrested Thursday morning.

He is being held at Southwestern Regional Jail on a $250,000 bond.
