HOUSTON - An unidentified man twice within the last few weeks has strolled into a Hedwig Village department store and exposed himself near the pillow aisle, police say.

"From what the witnesses have told us he was masturbating right there in public," Hedwig Village Police Sgt. Steve Packard said.

The most recent incident happened July 29th at 2:09 pm. Police know the exact time because the event was caught on store surveillance video. Marshalls Home Goods store at 9425 Katy Freeway in Hedwig Village was packed with people that day, including young children.

"This is an area where you don't really expect something like that, it's kind of creepy," a female shopper said.

Two women, ages 48 and 49, saw the man exposing himself and alerted store management, then police.

The unidentified man, who may be in his 20s according to police, will be charged with indecent exposure when he is caught, Packard said.

The problem is the man managed to slip away both times, leaving, most likely by car, shortly after being spotted.

If you have information about the man's identity call Crime Stoppers of Houston at 713-222-TIPS or the Hedwig Village Police Department at 713-461-4797.
