Police Can't Solve Case Of 'Ninja Masturbator'

"We need the public's help."

A masked man described as the "ninja masturbator" has pleasured himself at the front door of a Seattle home several times -- and police have yet to find him.

"It's a priority for us to at least get him ID'd so we can work on getting him in here for questioning or behind bars," Detective Patrick Michaud told The Huffington Post.

The masked masturbator has visited the home as many as four times, police say.

The man is covered head to toe in dark clothing (looks white in the night-vision surveillance video), except for his active hand and exposed penis, the Seattle Police Department wrote in its blotter Monday. 

The first report of him masturbating outside the house occurred Jan. 10 when a resident called 911, police said. A surveillance camera caught him in the act on Feb. 7.

"We need the public's help in ID'ing this guy," a detective said of the perpetrator.

Cops say those who live there attend the University of Washington and have "heard suspicious sounds outside their house on several occasions." They say the suspect, whose makeshift ninja outfit and five-toed shoes stand out in the security footage, has visited as many as four times in the last few months.

"We need the public's help in ID'ing this guy," Michaud said.
