Dover Police are asking for the public's help identifying a man they say committed a lewd sex act in the public library in front of a juvenile. 

According to authorities, a 17-year-old female was working on a computer on the 3rd floor of the library at 35 Loockerman Plaza around 1 p.m. on Saturday, June 22, 2019, when she looked over and saw a man "seated in a lounge chair rubbing his exposed penis."

The victim quickly exited the area and reported the activity, but the suspect fled before police arrived. 

Anyone with information on his identity is urged to contact Dover Police at 302.736.7130 or Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1.800.TIP.3333.
