Police Seek Man in Pantyhose Who Exposed Himself at Local Salons
Flasher captured by Rochester Hills surveillance cameras may be responsible for nearly a dozen incidents around Metro Detroit, including Bloomfield Township.
A man who walked into a Rochester Hills salon Tuesday night wearing only a shirt and sheer, blue pantyhose is believed by authorities to be the same man who has exposed himself at least 10 times at area shops and salons recently.
The man entered the Salon Bliss on Rochester Road at about 9:45 p.m. and asked employees about a Brazilian wax while walking back and forth in the front of the salon, reports said. He had nothing else on underneath the pantyhose and was pacing "apparently so that everyone could clearly see him," according to Ray White, a detective with the Oakland County Sheriff's Office Rochester Hills Substation.
He was inside for just about a minute before leaving abruptly, White said. The incident was reported to authorities Friday. The man was captured on the salon's surveillance camera and police are looking for the public's help to identify him.
An hour before this incident, a similar indecent exposure incident was reported in nearby Auburn Hills, White said. Over the past few months, a man wearing pantyhose has been reportedly "seeking attention" in Rochester Hills, Canton Township, Auburn Hills, Bloomfield Township and West Bloomfield Township, White said.
More details about the local incident were not immediately available. West Bloomfield police said a man entered the Eden Revolution at 7421 Orchard Lake Rd. on Feb. 18 and exposed himself after asking for a "wax." He wore just a black leather jacket and sheer black pantyhose that exposed his genitals, police said.
White said the man in the Rochester Hills incident was in his 50s, about 6 feet tall with a heavy upper body build and skinny legs. He wore glasses and a baseball cap backward. He was dressed in a grey long-sleeved button-up shirt over a blue T-shirt that was inside out and backward; he was wearing women's sheer pantyhose that were bluish in color.
Last month, a man wearing only a short sweater and sheer nylons exposed himself to employees of Francesca's Collection. Also at that Village of Rochester Hills boutique, a man reportedly exposed himself to store employees during the Village's annual tree lighting in November.
In that November incident, a man who said he was looking for "bobbles and trinkets" opened the down coat he was wearing and exposed himself; he was wearing only tights underneath the coat, according to a sheriff's office report.
