Holly — A man asked to wear a mask at a Dollar Tree store in northern Oakland County allegedly wiped his nose on the shirt of a female clerk before leaving in a white van, police said.

The alleged incident took place about 1:30 p.m. Saturday, at a Dollar Tree on the 400 block of North Saginaw Street, south of Grange Hall Road.

Police released surveillance video of a man who appears to be wiping his nose on the sleeve of a Family Dollar clerk.
