UTICA (WWJ/AP) - Authorities say a man wearing sheer women’s pantyhose who exposed himself in several suburban Detroit communities in recent months has struck again.
The man went into two businesses Tuesday night in Utica, Plato’s Closet and Justice For Girls, and displayed similar behavior as in the previous cases, reported the Oakland Press of Pontiac.
The Oakland County Sheriff’s Department released a surveillance photograph on the man Monday following a March 13 indecent exposure report in Rochester Hills, when he walked into a salon and asked for a bikini wax.
In some cases the man was reported to be wearing a shirt and hat, and only pantyhose to cover the lower half of his body. He is described as a white male, approximately in his 50’s, 6’0” tall, with a heavy upper build, a “pot belly” and skinny legs.
Including the Utica incidents, the department said the man has exposed himself at least 12 times in seven different communities across Macomb, Oakland and Wayne counties.
Nina Maniachi was working one evening at Salon Bliss in Rochester Hills when he walked in.
“He was wearing black sheer pantyhose with nothing undernath, so he was totally exposed and you could see everything,” Maniachi told WWJ Newsradio 950.
“I don’t think any of us really knew how to handle the situation. It’s nerve-racking,” she said. “You don’t know what this guy’s capable of. You don’t know if he gonna try to rob you. Of he has, you know, a gun on him … We were all like really nervous.”
Maniachi said the man asked about body waxing and then left.
Anyone who might know who this man is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-SPEAK-UP. A cash reward is being offered for tips leading to an arrest in the case.
