Man wanted for following shopper, masturbating in Kohl's store

- Police say this man had something else on his mind besides finding a deal as he walked the aisles inside a West Bloomfield Kohl's.

"Loss prevention advised us that he was masturbating in the store," said Deputy Chief Curt Lawson, West Bloomfield police."

A behavior that was first noticed by Kohl's security as they watched him on camera. The suspect is described as a black male in his early 20s who has short black hair, a short beard and mustache. He was wearing a black t-shirt, black pants, and a black back pack.

"They went to confront him and said 'We know what you are doing' and he ran out the door."

Police say during his time in the store he fixed his sights on one particular person, exposed himself, grabbed a shirt from the rack then committed the lewd act until he was confronted.

Investigators say the woman was followed around by the man and didn't know it. All indications are that she had no idea this was happening.

Police say there were even a couple times where he may have brushed up against the woman inside the store.

"We're going to have a conversation with her and get more details," Lawson said. "We discourage this behavior and it won't be tolerated."

Police are looking into possible leads however if you were in the store around noon on Wednesday or have information on who the person caught on camera, they are asking you reach out to them.

Kohl's declined comment on the story.
