A Missouri man may face charges for tricking unsuspecting women into giving him hugs. He has been given the nickname "Jack the Gripper" for his antics.
According to The Inquisitr, the man has been approaching women and claiming that he is an old friend and then begins hugging them.
A total of 36 women have come forward so far and claimed to have been victims of his antics. WebProNew.com reports that one of the women alleges that the man even went so far as to give her a kiss on the lips.
The Huffington Post reports that police have been able to track down the 44-year-old man after one of the victims took down his license plate and police reviewed surveillance video from a local supermarket where he is said to have committed many of his acts. The man's name has not yet been publicly released.
