The first incident allegedly occurred Feb. 1 at a Wal-Mart in Sacramento County, Ramos said. Caldwell approached a 8-year-old girl and exposed himself to her. He left the store unidentified, Ramos said.

It allegedly happened again on Feb. 3, when Caldwell approached a 5-year-old girl inside a Thriftown USA store in Sacramento County and exposed himself to her, Ramos said. Caldwell again left the store before being identified.

Detectives believe there could be more victims. Authorities ask that anyone who recognizes Caldwell and believes they had inappropriate contact with him call sheriff's Detective John Linke at (916) 874-5191.
