Police seek man hugging St. Louis-area women


ST. LOUIS - Police in the St. Louis area want to question a man who has approached several women and convinced them to give him a hug.

KMOX Radio reported that the man approaches the women in public and claims he and the targeted women are long-lost friends. After a brief conversation he asks for a hug.

Similar incidents have happened at several Schnucks markets over the past several days. When it happened recently at a Schnucks store in Fairview Heights, Ill., the woman called police.

1. We all could use

a hug and a kind word from time to time.

But this is kind of creepy.

2. Hugs...Not drugs!

Of course when they catch this guy they'll get him on some meds right away so he'll stop hugging people.
