ST. LOUIS (AP) - 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 (http://cbsloc.al/Kx9rS6 ) reports 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.
