(COLUMBUS) - A Taylorsville man is in custody on charges of molestation and attempted abduction in two incidents involving children at a Walmart store.

Columbus Police Lt. Matt Myers says 43-year-old Jeffrey Brock tried to pull a 7-year-old girl from the eastside Walmart's shoe department after she briefly stepped a short distance away from her mother.

The girl broke free and the girl's mother and Brock got into a shoving match. A shopper and the woman's husband got involved and the man escaped.

A few minutes later, Brock inappropriately touched an 8-year-old girl near the store's entrance. The incident was caught on video surveillance footage. The girl's parents were 15 feet away talking to a friend when the incident happened.

Brock was arrested on charges of child molestation, a Class C felony; sexual battery, a Class D felony; and two counts of battery, misdemeanors charges.
