A man who was previously accused of indecent exposure at a West Bloomfield Township boutique is now being sought by authorities around the county after similar incidents have been reported across metro Detroit.
The alleged suspect — who the Oakland County Sheriff’s Department describes as a white male, roughly in his 50s, wearing glasses, 6-feet-tall, with a heavy upper-body build, a “pot belly,” and skinny legs — was recorded by security cameras at Salon Bliss in Rochester on Tuesday, March 13, when he entered to store wearing sheer stockings that revealed his genitals. The incident was reported on Friday, March 16.
This comes nearly a month after a similar incident was reported at the Eden Revolution boutique on Orchard Lake Road in West Bloomfield on Feb. 18.
That day, the alleged suspect came in wearing black sheer pantyhose, a black leather jacket, a beige hat, beige moccasins and thick black plastic sunglasses.
Employees said they could see the man’s genitals through the pantyhose and that he asked for a wax. He was also reported to have been at the salon two weeks prior to that incident.
The man later fled the store after employees sought assistance from a man at the business next door.
According to the sheriff’s department, similar incidents have been reported three times in Rochester Hills, three times in Canton Township, and once each in Auburn Hills, Bloomfield Township, and Chesterfield Township.
Anyone with information on the suspect is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-SPEAK-UP.
