UPDATE: Police arrest a man after shocking surveillance video catches him stalking a teenage girl through Walmart.

21-year-old Skyler Smith was arrested for third degree sexual assault. Police caught Smith after talking to the woman he was with at the store.

Police say they got the woman's identity from the card she swiped at Walmart.

Police released surveillance video of the man Wednesday.

The video shows the man leave the store just before her and then approach her in the parking lot.

Police say he told her she was pretty and asked for her number, but she refused several times and went to her car.

The man got into her car with her and kept asking for hugs. That's when police say the man fondled her several times.

The teen was able to get him out and she took off.

The video shows the man go back into the store and meet up with the woman and child before leaving.

Police believe because of the way the man tracked the girl this may not have been his first time doing this.
