Officers arrested a 67-year-old Garth Clark after getting complaints that he was following girls around a costume store, taking cellphone pictures of their body parts.

It happened Monday at a Halloween City on Florin road – shop with thousands of colorful costumes that draws lots of kids inside.

But, people noticed a man following the children around and snapping inappropriate pictures. Cops caught up with him and arrested him last night.

“That’s not okay … I would have to hurt him. Yes. Yes I would. He’s lucky he’s in jail. That he wasn’t here when I was here. ‘Cause he’d be in the hospital, I’d be in jail,” said Tristen Willliams, a mom.

But, now, Clark walks free, waiting for his day in court.

“It’s wrong and it will come out at the trial,” Clark said when we caught up with him outside of Sacramento County Jail.

Clark is from Idaho. He’s in Sacramento to visit family.

There are many photos of unidentified children in the suspect’s phone. Investigators want to hear from parents if they are worried their child was photographed, or if you recognize the suspect’s booking photo.
