John Philip Dragovich – Repeat Sex Offender – Preying on kids at Targets

Collier County Sheriff’s deputies have arrested a registered sex offender after he allegedly molested a child in the toy section of a local retail store.

John Philip Dragovich, 39, 3225 29th Ave. N.E. is accused of lewd and lascivious molestation on a victim younger than 12 on July 31 at the Super Target store at 2415 Tarpon Bay Blvd. in North Naples. He was taken into custody on Tuesday.

Arrest reports say the child was in the toy section one aisle over from her mother around 2:30 p.m. when Dragovich put his hand under her dress and touched her buttocks over her bathing suit. The man did not say anything to her.

The girl immediately told her mother what happened and the sheriff’s office was called.

Dragovich matched the description of the suspect the girl gave deputies, including a facial composite. Store surveillance video shows Dragovich was inside the store, including in the toy section, around the time the girl reported she was molested.

Deputies made contact with Dragovich, who deputies say is a registered sex offender in Collier County, at his home Tuesday and arrested him.
