Loren Clyde Bauer.

Loren Clyde Bauer has a serious problem.

The 62-year-old man has been convicted repeatedly over the past decade of exposing himself in public, mostly in the Twin Cities, and evidently with a preference for the aisles of Jo-Ann Fabrics.

Now he's been charged with indecent conduct after a creepy incident at the former Borders Books on University Avenue in St. Paul.

He's accused of following a teenage girl around, making lewd comments, whistling, and then shocking the hell out of her by masturbating.

It's the same MO he's used for years: He dropped his pants at the same Borders Books once before, but got away before the police showed up.

His latest conviction was just last October, when he was sentenced to 90 days behind bars for a similar incident at J-Ann Fabrics, the Pioneer Press reports.

Can we get this guy off the streets?

Bauer's due in court again on June 20. Something tells us it won't be his last date in court.
