Have you seen this Patina pervert? [PICTURE]

Minneapolis police are asking for the public's help in tracking down a man who recently walked into a Patina store, exposed himself, and began to masturbate in front of employees.

The employees, for obvious reasons, immediately fled the store and called the cops. The pervert also took off, leaving the scene in a car employees believed was a gold-colored Toyota Prius.

Because he managed to get away before cops arrived, all the police have to go on is a description and an image from the store's surveillance tape.

The offender is thought to be in his 50s, somewhere around five-foot-three or five-foot-six, and, given this incident, seems to have serious issues with impulse control.

The Patina that the man victimized was at 2305 18th Ave. NE, and the crime took place around 8:30 p.m. on the night of September 23.

As depicted in the surveillance tape, the man was wearing a blue and white sweater with horizontal stripes, and shorts.

Anyone with information that could lead to an arrest should contact Sergeant Aaron Baird with the Minneapolis Police Department's Sex Crimes Unit, which can be reached at 612-673-2881.
