PLYMOUTH, Mich. (WXYZ) — Detectives identified a man Thursday accused of exposing himself at an adult store in Plymouth late last month.

Police say the indecent exposure happened March 24 at the Lover's Lane store on Ann Arbor Road. The man entered the location and asked to try on some clothes.

An employee gave the man an item and showed him to the dressing rooms. He then called the employee over to ask her what she thought of him in the garment. Police say the man asked the employee if he could try on another pair of underwear, and the employee retrieved the item.

When she returned with the second item, the man stood naked from the waist down in front of the dressing room. The woman told the suspect to go back into the dressing room. He eventually got dressed, bought a pair of under and left the store.

Officers were able to identify the man thanks to your help.

"Tip from the public, emailed us the info," said Detective Lt. Jamie Grabowski. "The power of social media."
