Police: Man exposes self, masturbates in North Shore tanning salons

ST. TAMMANY PARISH, LA (WVUE) - Deputies are searching for a man who allegedly exposed himself at multiple tanning salons on the North Shore and was reportedly seen masturbating behind the counter.

The St. Tammany Parish Sheriff's Office states that the suspect, approximately 40-years-old, entered at least two North Shore tanning salons and asked questions about the tanning process.

The first reported incident happened on October 20 at Baja Tans in the 1100 block of North Highway 190 in Covington. Deputies say that the suspect asked if the spray tan would affect his “skin disorder.” Officers say he then pulled down his pants and underwear, exposing his genitals to the female employees.

Employees described the suspect as a bald white male. He is approximately 5'8” and was last seen wearing a green shirt and blue shorts.

Later that day, deputies say the same suspect entered another tanning salon in Mandeville. This incident occurred at Private Beach Tannins Salon, located in the 2100 block of North Causeway Boulevard.

Employees claim the suspect wanted to show employees his tan line, at which point he pulled down his shorts. After reviewing security footage, deputies say they believe the suspect was masturbating behind a counter while conversing with female employees.

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to contact detectives at (985) 276-7827.
