MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Roseville Police have issued a crime alert after a woman reported seeing a man touching himself inappropriately at a park.

Police said around 7 p.m. on Monday a woman reported that she parked her vehicle at a parking lot at Central Park in Roseville.

When she got out of the car, she noticed a man staring directly at her.

She didn’t feel safe and returned to her vehicle, but when she looked back the man was inappropriately touching himself under his clothing. He fled the scene.

Police checked the area, but weren’t able to find him.

He is described as being a tall, white man, with a thin build, and between 20-30 years old. He was wearing a dark sweatshirt with a hood up.

Police said to call them if you see suspicious activity in the area or if you’ve witnessed a similar incident in that area.

    I wish they would just call it what it is, chokindachiken!

    1. Mike says:

      Yeah, real funny you bozo.

  2. IWonderIF says:

    Sounds like Mike is the guy!

    1. Racism is ignorant says:

      Who’s ignoring “blacks”? Are you saying the paper isn’t allowed to print stories about white criminals because there are criminals of color? Or, that the woman in question should be flattered that she ran into a white pervert? Whoever your wife is, I have great pity on her.

      1. Mike says:

        This is a needle in a hay stack compared to black areas. Nothing in the news. Also, Read, review, and learn to compose a message, moron.
        Lastly, be careful what you type, you could get youself in trouble.

        1. Lynch says:

          I’ve concluded that whites can’t get any that’s why they do at parks. Miikes simply jealous, it was you!

            1. Mike says:

              No, I wouldn’t even want to be his cellmate!!! It’s funny, you label me as a molester for standing up for equal rights. FUNNY.

          1. Really People?!? says:

            Actually, statistically speaking white males account for a little over 90% of all kidnappers, pedophiles, serial killers, etc. I’ll be happy to send you the journal srticle by Northwestern Law.

            1. Victim Du Jour says:

              Does that include statistics in Africa?

              People are using sex offense hype as a political weapon.

              Mexico has been cited by amnesty international for the Human trafficking of children.

              1. Victim Du Jour says:

                @ Really people!?!

                Only way to make white Americans worse than what happens to women and children In Africa and Mexico is to make grabbing yourself in public into a big deal.

        2. Racism is ignorant says:

          Mike are you making threats?

          1. Mike says:

            No, nice try though liberal.

            1. Racism is ignorant says:

              Mike, you revel what many know. Republicans are often inherently racist. I don’t know that you’re supposed to admit that though.

              1. Racism is ignorant says:

                Meant to say – Mike, you REVEAL what many know. Republicans are often inherently racist. I don’t know that you’re supposed to admit that though.

                1. Mike says:

                  Funny, labeling. My opinion is the exact opposite. Liberals are inherently racist. You must be some dumb kid listening to your high school teacher too literally.

                2. Mike says:

                  Mike, you REVEAL what many know. Republicans are often inherently racist. I don’t know that you’re supposed to admit that though.

                  Yes I am a racist for a manhunt about a guy who touched himself in a park. While violence is down all the side roads you liberals pass by as you go to your local shops.

                3. Victim Du Jour says:

                  Only party with a Ku Klux Klan history is the Democratic Party.

                4. Ben says:

                  @Victim Du Jour
                  That was during the progressive era of the republican party, and the conservative era of the Democratic Party. At that time, women like Alice Paul and Susan B. Anthony were considered republicans -I doubt very highly that they would still be called that today.

                5. Victim Du Jour says:

                  What do republicans of today have to feel guilty for? Passing MLK day?

                  The GOP has never attempted to pass blatantly racist legislation, ever. The GOP has never successfully passed anti-black legislation. The only party that can be legally sued for KKK or racism is the DNC.

                  Your corny 60’s urban myths don’t hold water in the scientific community.

        3. Klint Klanwood says:

          Really Mike, trouble? Do you have small pipi syndrome? I am white and I know how you feel bro.

        4. Internet Tuff Guy Mike says:

          @ mike……”Be careful what you write”

          LOL….we got an internet tuff guy here folks!! Big bad Mike is issue warnings through WCCO comment page!!! Watch out and stand back everyone, mike says we might all be in big, big trouble.

          I am surprised you didnt threaten to take your ball and go home!!!

          Unfortunately, your bullying may work around the cowards in your real life, but you must understand that in the real world: no one is afraid of you, because you are pathetic and weak, you are nobody important. I wouldnt cross the street to put you out if you were on fire!! So save your “warnings” and stfu.

          Everything these people say is true. And i greatly pitty your wife too. I can only hope you come home to find her cheating with your neighbor from the next trailer down!!

          Eat rocks Mike, and save your “warnings” for someone who actually cares. What a joke!!!

          1. Mike says:

            $250,000 house, you mean? Eat rocks? Thank you, I am a Geologist.

            1. Internet Tuff Guy Mike says:

              Really….where do you work Mike? (you are not a geologist, i thought you managed people? Maybe you are like a super special manager, who manages other geologist or superhero’s or something. Common mike…tell us a good story)

              Second…am i still in trouble or can i go play now? LOL…wheres all that trouble you promised there tough guy?

              1. Mike says:

                Geoligical engineering, Construction planning, don’t have envy. The funny thing, I dropped out of high school, and didn’t start college again until my late 20’s. I am not wet behind the ears, no Similac on my breath baby.

              2. Mike says:

                STFU is a real creep. Real classy pal. It takes a pervert to come up with something like that!

              3. Mike says:

                I don’t respond to fools who use terms like LOL. Learn English and write me back.

            2. Jeff says:

              $250,000 house, which in this market means $210,000. If it’s a neighborhood of $200-300K homes it can’t be too high end. This suggests a lower income for such a “highly” educated man. Interesting.

              1. Mike says:

                Yes, I am not rich, came from a poor upbrining. But I am proud of it, and newly graduated with kids, thanks Jeff.

                1. Jeff says:

                  No no Mike you took that message the wrong way, i was trying to be sarcastic, newly graduated from what pampers*?


    2. Glenn Beckkk says:

      Who’s ignoring “blacks”? Are you saying the paper isn’t allowed to print stories about white criminals because there are criminals of color? Or, that the woman in question should be flattered that she ran into a white pervert? Whoever your wife is, I have great pity on her.

  3. Michael says:

    What if the man who was “looking” at her did so prior to his “adjusting” his member? Is that criminal too? Next time I see a woman adjusting her blouse or bra, I’m calling the cops too!

    1. Mike says:

      I know, I’m afraid to tuck in my shirt on a chilly day in public.

      1. RUMORS says:

        The white guy had a hoodie on. he wasn’t tucking in his shirt, fool.

    2. Klint Klanwood says:

      You are stupid Michael why would you call police when you happen to witness something so magical like adjusting bra or blouse? There is a difference between adjusting clothes or touch yourself. Perhaps, you are too chauvinistic to understand the difference.

      1. Michael says:

        Klint-I have never worn a bra, and I’m guessing I would need to have the sexual surgery you have, (transsexual) to understand the magic of adjusting my bra….

      2. Victim Du Jour says:

        They didn’t say he was exposing himself either. People do put their hands in hoodie pockets.

        I know women who are over-paranoid about sex offenders and child molesters. Sometimes it just sounds like they are bragging about people wanting sex with them.

  4. Racism is ignorant says:

    Mike, what’s your point?

    1. Mike says:

      My point? You kidding? Where is that crime on WCCO news? Factual crimes, more serious and violent. Nowhere in the news. That is not ignorance, terms like “racism is ignorant” to a very well educated man like myself is ignorant.

      1. Mike's a Molester? says:

        “A very well educated man like myself.” Boy, you sure do think highly of yourself there buddy. I bet you think you’re special huh? You are more deserving than others, your opinion is the most important?

        Truth be told, you are a gutless, sniveling weasel, whom if confronted in public, would back down quicker than anything. Which is probably what you need, might help you keep your ego in check, and let you understand that when everything goes away, and it is just you and someone else….you are as pathetic, weak and cowardly as they come.

        Regardless if you think this story merits publication on this site, your comments about looking for black males (for no specific crime in particular mind you) is unacceptable. Perfect example of how your “elite education” failed you miserably. I will pray for you, or that I run into you, maybe both

        1. Mike says:

          Funny, I am very confrontational, violent and up front. I’m a Republican, member of the NRA and went to a high school with 3% white Americans. Now I manage multiple people after I graduated college. I look for confrontation from criminals, and criminal supporters like yourself. But good guess.

          1. Jason Delga says:

            I pity the fool, the republicans are morons and people using the 2nd amendment. Mike you that fool, you also that moron you obviously can’t stand up for yourself in confrontation, but i guess you do got a gun so we should be scared? You manage multiple people? What the hell does that mean? I do to, i own a restaurant and multiple white high schoolers all of which also find you a fool.

            1. ## says:

              Hey Jason Delga — I believe Mike is standing up for himself in all of his statements above. Your retort is obviously emotion filled rant from someone who can’t see past liberal vs. conservative. The argument that all conservatives are racist, gun slinging, elitists is so yesterday. Mike might be tool for having to point out the “black” crime in that area and in doing so sounded like a complete ass but atleast his replies to you aren’t filled with nasty comments, name calling and threats. Keep to the point and find some grammar lessons, smarty pants … you own multiple white high schoolers?

              1. Jason Delga says:

                ## my bad good point.

                1. ## says:

                  @Jason Delga — I take that back, after reading most of Mike’s or whoever is writing with the name “Mike” is a major tool and his replies have gotten nasty. Yuck. Name calling sucks.

                2. ## says:

                  And now I need the grammar lessons. 🙂

                3. Jason Delga says:

                  Ha it’s fine, I’m glad you took your time to find he was a tool though, but i also get your point. I guess i did point own in the place.

            2. Mike says:

              I’ll check out the last name, spread the word, and boycott you BS polical business.

          2. Mike's a Molester? says:

            Yes, i am a criminal supporter because i wont categorize all young black males as criminals.

            Your elite education is truly showing itself, as your logic is far superior to that of us mear mortals. I bet the people you manage are real impressed with that kind of intellect, logic and reasoning:)

            Again….how highly must you think of yourself…what a joke!!!

          3. Jeff says:

            Mike is so busy he has time chat on this thing all day. He is very well educated though. Criminal supporters? Mike don’t be such a moron.

            1. Mike says:

              Don’t you some rocks to chuck at the RNC?

          4. Mike's poor wife says:

            What about confronting criminal perverts in Central Park Mike? You’re defending them. Why?

            1. Mike says:

              I feel bad for you children, so unprepared. They will be dominated in the REAL world!

            2. Mike says:

              Go ahead, they should call the cops. Walk around Lake Phalen at dusk sometime. You will know what I’m talking about.

              1. Mike's poor wife says:

                Mike, I’ve walked lake Phalen many times.

      2. Racism is ignorant says:

        Mike, you’re not suggesting that this crime is not newsworthy are you? Or that CBS never reports crimes involving black males? Or, that white men never commit what you deem “serious” crimes? Or, that the man involved in this disgusting act is certain not to escalate? .Or, that young children should be exposed to this kind of behavior? Or, that parents should feel safe sending their children to this park to play, in spite of the fact that a sex offender is lurking about? Or, that a woman would rather be exposed to a white pervert than a black pervert?

        Your supposed education does not mean you’re intelligent. Racism is ignorance.

        1. Mike says:

          A supposed sex sex offender lurking is troubling, yes, I have kids too. But what goes on where I grew up would make the on the back of your necks stand up. Why is this not in the news? Because you people think it would be racist, so thanks alot, at least your parks are safe. Good for you, selfish liberals.

          1. Mike says:

            the hair on the back of your necks stand up

          2. Mike says:

            Allah? No thanks.

      3. RUMORS says:

        Mike, your ignorance knows no bounds. The crime that has been reported is serious.

        Here is a search on the CBS website involving the terms “black make”.


        Feel better now?

      4. markH says:

        I have to say that I agree emphatically with Mike’s point. There are myriad violent crimes that occur in our area and the media (WCCO in this case) chooses to report a rather mundane, victimless “crime” simply because of its “shock” value. Now, perhaps this story merits mention to the public, but there are plenty of other crimes (crimes that actually have victim(s) that can fill these pages. Peace.

        1. Mike is a fool. says:

          Mark, do you take issue with the fact that society accepts the fact that crime in urban areas? Or, with the fact that CBS dared to report about a white guy committing a crime, like Mike does?

          1. Mike says:

            They don’t dare talk about BLACK CRIME BECAUSE OF PEOPLE LIKE YOU. You people can’t see this? I am being berated for complaing about a story that made the local news about a man who supposedly touched himself. VIOLENT CRIMES TO unsuspecting innocent people happens every day. IT IS NEVER REPORTED! So thank you for contributing to the real crime.

  5. Troy says:

    I think white or black, if you committ a crime such that it is in sexual in nature (molestation, rape, ect.), they should cut off thier dickk and make it public everytime. Honestly, there would be way more blacks walking around dickless because statistics don’t lie when it comes to this sort of crime. Face the facts and don’t pull the racist card everytime all you black people. Start raising your children with respect and turn around the statistics. Racism will totally reduce in society if all you black people (poor or rich) start caring about your children. Also, its time you all get off of your asses and find that aptitude to get out in public and work for a living. White or black, we all have to live together and work to support ourselves and our children.

  6. Demetairs Bell says:

    Mike you are an *sshole! Why do people that are not black think Black Males accoount for all the crime in this country? In case you don’t know plenty of white people committ crimes. It’s just okay or an “isolated” incident when they do it.

    1. Mike says:

      Who said all punk. Why does a POSSIBLE crime make the news. You ever been to county homeboy? I have, not too white.

    2. Mike says:

      What is the origin of that name?

    3. Joy says:

      It’s actually white middle-aged men who account for the majority of sex crimes, statistics don’t lie.

      1. Victim Du Jour says:

        Most sex crimes happen in Africa, so you are lying.

  7. Victim Du Jour says:

    This could be a form of Munchausen.

    Women calling the police, but it’s basically “give me attention for being a potential rape victim”

    It’s like bragging about being hot, without saying it directly. And if the cop likes the victim, he’ll get brownie points for taking the report serious.

    1. making excuses for white psychos says:

      Or .. it could be a person who wants a pervert arrested?

      1. Victim Du Jour says:

        Dude didn’t expose himself, so it’s free speech. Just like when Micheal Jackson grabbed himself in music videos.

        1. Mike says:

          Or when they walk around w/ thier underwear out.

  8. Victim Du Jour says:

    It could be a new form of munchausen.

    If someone wants attention for being a potential sex crime victim, call the police.

    It’s like saying you are hot, without sounding like bragging. And if the police officer likes the victim, he’ll get brownie points taking it serious.

  9. Bruce says:

    To those of you who seem to think this isn’t really that big a deal, I would like to point out that many serial rapists and killers first started their careers doing just this sort of thing. And if I want to see some guy fondling himself, I know where I can go rent a movie and watch it in the privacy of my home. Parks are fore veryone,a nd everyone doesn’t want to see that sort of thing.

  10. Basra says:

    Mike is Schizophrenic. He is hearing voices, poor thing. LOL

  11. Chester the Molester says:

    It was me.

  12. Pencils Down Class says:

    I first read this title as: “Police Man Touched Himself Inappropriately At Roseville Park”. Punctuation makes all the difference here.

  13. Alison says:

    I think we are all getting way too far away from the fact that some idiot was in a park doing something disgusting. I don’t care what color he was, it was wrong. That kind of behavior isn’t ok in public no matter who you are.

  14. Really People?!? says:

    I guess I missed the part in your numerous rants, Mike where you were trying to convey the neccesity of equal rights. Here’s what I got:

    1.This incident is a needle in a haystack compared to the crime in predominantly black areas
    2. You would rather your wife walk in that park instead of near black people (i’m paraphrasing of course)
    3. You are a gun-toting, card carrying NRA member who’s send veiled threats

    Did I get it all? Sorry don’t see the equal rights part. If you wanted to vent your frustration about crime in an area that you live in that you believes goes unnoticed, I think there was a better method.

    1. Mike says:

      Line up with signs? Or throw rocks at the RNC? I’m sure it is easy for you to say. You learned about urban life from PBS.

      1. Mister Koch says:

        Mike the Tea Party and Koch Brothers arranged the RNC protests. Get your rock throwers straight. Regardless, it’s a shame the RNC protests were reported in the news. What, with all the “black urban crime” and all.

  15. max says:

    You guys, Mike is having a lot of fun being a troll. Don’t feed the trolls!

  16. Mike says:

    “Your comment is awaiting moderation.”
    See, they censor the truth.

  17. Mike says:

    You need to be checked out. Truth be told, if I seen a man fondling himself in a park, he would be in a world of hurt.

    1. Mike says:

      And it would be all over the news…

    2. MARK says:

      Internet tough guy right here. Back away slowly, folks.

      1. Mike says:

        Yeah, it’s a joke you mark a** punk.

  18. MIKE also says:

    Woman gives birth on the side of the road… did any guy call the cops when she laid down and spread her legs IN PUBLIC??!!

  19. Ellen says:

    Seems everyone is getting way off track here with disgusting stuff. Maybe the guy at the park was just scratching his crotch….or maybe he’s a pervert. Either way the comments on here are ridiculous.

  20. Mike says:

    WCCO knows what they just intercepted from me. Why censor criticism? You are all unsuited for your posts and should be fired ASAP.

  21. manny says:

    Most ridiculous comment board EVER.

  22. Mike says:

    Funny, potential crime off of Lexington and Cty Rd C. You Liberals must not travel much. Why do you live there, are you afraid to live around minorities?

  23. Mike says:

    Moderate my comments you liberals. You can stand outside with signs. Assult buildings with stones in riots, but no one can stick up for me, hmmm.

  24. Mike says:

    You know I started this rant because it is against policy to name race if a minority commits a crime on the news. Too many complaints about profiling. Unless there is a video or sketch, they WILL NOT reveal race, unless he is white.
    Take that to the bank, over 3 years now in MN Metro, No leads, don’t know what to look for. But LOOK OUT FOT A WHITE GUY, 20-30, WITH A SLIM BUILD IN CENTRAL PARK! Unbelievable. You people make me sick, “Racism is ignorant” stay away from my kids.

    1. Mike is a fool. says:

      Mike, you’re extra foolish. Really you are. It’s not against policy to name race if a minority commits a crime – you idiot.

  25. Mike says:

    But look out for a whit guy, 20-30 with a slim biuld in Central Park. PATHETIC!

  26. Mike says:

    Racism is ignorant
    You are the problem with America. You enable violence just to keep your parks prestine. Shame on you.

  27. Mike says:

    WCCO, what is REALLY going on in the area?

  28. Keeping it real in Minnesota says:

    Maybe the guy had an itch……….ya know?….dudes have that from time to time…..lol

  29. Mike says:

    Patrol McCarrons Lake sometime. Stuff like this happens daily. Different desrciption, no description, no reports, no patrols, libs don’t care, etc…

  30. bingo4 says:

    she didn’t feel safe, she’s in ramsey county, that feeling is normal.
