CHICAGO — A search is underway for a man who kissed a 6-year-old girl on the cheek and then put her hand in his pants pocket.

Police say it happened at a grocery store in the Logan Square area Saturday night at Diversey and Springfield.

She tried to stop the man, who was wearing a baseball hat, a vest and a backpack.

The owner of the store also got involved.

The attacker got away.

The man has a Spanish accent and a thin mustache.
