Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a man who allegedly spied on a teenage boy in a Macy’s bathroom earlier this month.

On Aug. 14, a teenage boy was in the department store bathroom at Springfield Town Center when he said he noticed two men looking at him in the stall. One of the men allegedly lowered his pants and began masturbating in front of the boy, according to police.

The boy frantically texted his mom. His mother came into the bathroom, which prompted the men to leave. An investigation revealed one man went back into the bathroom shortly after and remained in the store.

Video footage showed a man in the area of the store around the time of the incident.

Anyone who can help identify the man in the photo or has any information regarding this incident is asked to contact the Fairfax County Major Crimes Bureau detectives at 703-246-7800.
