A man accused of grabbing two young girls' buttocks while shopping at a San Bruno Target store and wearing a shirt that said "Rub Me For Luck" pleaded no contest to felony charges in exchange for five years in prison, San Mateo County prosecutors said Tuesday.

The case was about to go to trial but UPS driver Glenn Albrecht, 49, reached a deal Monday with prosecutors involving the prison sentence and registering as a sex offender for life, according to the district attorney's office.

Albrecht was charged with felony child molestation and possession of child pornography after he touched a 6-year-old girl's buttocks at the Target on Aug. 26, 2012, when the girl wandered into another aisle while shopping with her parents.

The girl told her parents what happened and when Albrecht came back into the Target, her father hit him and Target security detained him, according to the district attorney's office.

Police arrested him and reviewed surveillance video, in which they saw Albrecht touch another girl at the store the same day.

Police found that 11-year-old victim and she reported he had also grabbed her buttocks, prosecutors said.

When investigators searched Albrecht's apartment, they found child pornography and a life-size doll of a young girl, according to the district attorney's office.

Albrecht will return to court on Aug. 14 to be sentenced.
