|Sexual Harassment. :C

So, I recently got a new job about two months ago now. Right from the get-go I knew my manager was a little weird and the things he would say would verge on the line of sexual harassment. Well, now everything is getting really fishy there. Alan, our cleaning guy who comes in for a couple of hours every day, gave me an apron (because I bake, and my uniform is ALWAYS a mess from it)- that's not the weird part. After this happened another girl who works there, Nicole, warned me not to talk to him. She simply said, "He touches people, just stay away from him." |
Today, I overheard another person telling the other new girl to stay away from him too. At that point, I decided I had to know, so I asked.
Apparently, Alan used to work at a different location and he was sexually harassing the manager. He was fired. Well, he's good friends with the man who owns a couple of our stores, so Alan was given his job back immediately and now he works at my store. He's verbally and physically harassed several of our female workers since he's been here. My manager knows and just tells us not to talk to him. I'm pissed off, everyone knows but no one is willing to do anything.
What should I do, if anything at all? Should I talk to my manager or do I just wait until something happens to me and throw a fit?
