WICHITA, Kan. – Multiple salons in Wichita have filed police reports about a man they say has been behaving inappropriately.

Police say they are looking into the matter, but a Wichita defense attorney said the man is not doing anything illegal.

“He’s kind of indiscriminate but he’s going places where I’m sure…he’ll get the attention of women,” said Becky Smith, Mary Kate and Co.

Five salons claim a man has walked into their business, asked for a product and then drew attention to his pants area. The man would then leave the business without making a purchase.

“I figured he kind of knew what he was talking about,” said Hannah Bates, Eric Fisher West. “But when he came in he was fully aroused.”

The man’s actions are making stylists and customers uncomfortable.

Wichita police say they are working to identify the man in order to speak with him and determine if he’s doing anything illegal.

Criminal defense attorney Dan Monnat says the man’s behavior is not illegal.

“What one person imagines is underneath another person’s clothing is, by legal definition, not a public exposure,” said Monnat. “Therefore, this accused behavior cannot be prosecuted as a violation of the lewd and lascivious behavior law.”

The man usually wears a green jacket with khaki pants. If you know who he is, call CrimeStoppers at 316-267-2111.
