ST. TAMMANY PARISH, LA (WVUE) -

St. Tammany sheriff’s detectives are trying to identify a man reportedly engaged in obscene behavior near the St. Tammany Trace on Tuesday.

Two women who were walking on the Trace around noon called 911 to report the incident. They told responding deputies that they saw a small, silver-colored sedan parked near the Trace’s intersection with Joseph Street. The car, which possibly had aftermarket rims and headlights, was parked with the driver’s door open. Inside the vehicle, the women saw an unclothed, heavyset white male masturbating.

The women continued walking and were unable to get the car's license plate number.

The Sheriff's Office has assigned extra patrols along the St. Tammany Trace, including traffic division motorcycles.

Anyone with information about this incident or the man’s identity is asked to call 911.
