CLACKAMAS, Ore. -- Deputies are asking the public's help in identifying a man caught on a Target store surveillance video in southeast Clackamas, Oregon, Saturday afternoon as he masturbated and wiped his sperm on a nearby woman shopping with her three-year-old daughter.

If you can identify this man who was caught on video surveillance masturbating then wiping sperm on a nearby woman shopping with her three-year-old daughter, call 503.723.4949.CCSO photo.

The woman, a 30-year old Vancouver, Washington resident, reported the incident to store security and the sheriff's office immediately after it happened about 3:25 p.m., March 8, Clackamas County Sheriff's Detective Jim Strovink said.

The suspect is described as a white male in his late 20s or early 30s, about 5-foot 10-inches tall and weighing 180 pounds. He has short brown hair and a goatee, was wearing a long-sleeved white t-shirt, blue jeans and dark tennis shoes. In the video, he carried a cell phone and a wallet, Strovink said.

“At the very least, this is harassment and second-degree criminal mischief – both misdemeanors,” the detective said, but added that if the suspect is identified and the sperm is found to carry a sexually transmitted disease, the offender may be prosecuted for more serious crimes.

“Obviously this is an incident of considerable concern to the Sheriff's Office investigating this repulsive act,” Stovink said, asking anyone with information to call the Tip Line at (503) 723-4949 and reference report number 08-8352.
