Westword.com reported Thursday that the so-called "Thong Bandit" doesn't actually steal anything, but strips down to his thong and masturbates in front of strangers.
Though the suspect supposedly started off wearing a pink thong, he has reportedly switched to a darker hue.
Police have released a sketch of the subject, described as a white or Hispanic man in his 20s or 30s, though District 1 Commander Paul Pazen told 9 News it was hard to assemble an accurate picture of his characteristics.
"It's really difficult for people to process what they see in something like this [case]," Pazen said. "This is not something that is typical behavior, and it was difficult for us to get somebody that detailed enough information of this person's face in order to help us with the sketch."
