Walmart customers help stop attempted sexual assault


Walmart shoppers were able to stop a suspect after he tried to sexually assault a woman at a Walmart in Miami, police say.

The attack occurred Sunday evening, around 9:30 p.m., at the Walmart Supercenter located at 3200 NW 79th St. Cellphone video caught the attack that was sent to OnlyInDade.

According to the arrest report, a man “approached the victim from the rear and pulled her dress up while grabbing her buttocks.”

It goes on to explain that “he pushed her to the ground. The victim began screaming for aid.”

Customers heard the woman yelling and other shoppers jumped in without hesitation to stop the attack.

Bredan Jamal Harvey, 28, of Miami Gardens has been charged with sexual battery, and his bond has been set to $50,000.

Harvey made his first appearance in court Sunday. He was ordered to stay away from the victim and the Walmart.

Police believe that there could be other victims. If you are a victim or know of someone who may be a victim, contact Miami-Dade Police.
