Authorities in El Segundo are searching for a man who chased a woman into a drug store and masturbated in front of her at a Walgreens on the 300 block of North Sepulveda Boulevard on May 23, according to KTLA. The woman had been followed for several blocks by the suspect -- described as a 35 to 45-year-old black male, 5 feet 10 inches tall with a medium build -- driving a metallic blue Lexus sport utility vehicle described as a 2005-2010 RX330 or RX350 with damage on the left rear corner.

Reportedly when the woman pulled into the drug store parking lot the man "parked right next to her and started touching himself inappropriately." When the woman ran into the store, the man followed her, said police.

Inside the store the woman lost sight of the handy man. She left and notified police.
The man was captured on surveillance cameras apparently searching the store for the woman. Got info? Call El Segundo police at (310) 524-2216.
