WAUKEGAN, Ill. (CBS) – Women’s tires targeted at Target. That’s right, Waukegan Police are on the lookout for a white pickup truck seen leaving the parking lot on July 8.

The driver was following 20-year-old Alexa Colangelo, after police believe he tampered with her tire.

“When I came out there was a weird hissing noise by my car,” Colangelo told CBS 2.

She said the man in the white truck followed her and eventually confronted her at an intersection.

“He said: ‘Miss, you have a flat tire.’ He kept insisting he help me and I kept declining,” she said. “I was definitely scared.”

The man left and a professional deemed her tire was tampered with. There was a similar incident days before.

“We’re not really sure what this possible suspects motives are,” said Waukegan Police Commander Keith Zupec. “We would like to speak with him to see why he is doing this — to make sure this gentleman isn’t looking to do anything further than he has done.”

“I’m thankful that I didn’t stop,” said Colangelo.
