“You could tell just by her face she was quite frightened,” the TikToker, Brandon Robert, told In The Know.

“At first I was a little scared by his behavior, so for my safety, I pulled out my camera as most people do in odd situations,” Robert said. “Thankfully the man didn’t try to talk or touch me.”

“Oh my God, hi,” Robert says to the girl in the video. “How are you?”

“My aunt is here. Do you want to—,” Robert asks, giving the girl an out to leave. 

“Aunt Claire?” the girl answers, quickling catching on. “Let’s go.”

Later, as the two walk away, the girl thanks Robert. She claims the man asked her whether she wanted to go back to his place. 

“It was so creepy,” she said. “Thank you for helping me.”

Robert told In The Know that he walked the girl out of the store and to her car. He explained that he thought recording the video would show “that these things do happen and how people can help.”
