HENRY COUNTY, Ga. - McDonough police are looking for a man they say exposed himself to a woman in a popular restaurant.

Authorities told Channel 2's Craig Lucie this was an isolated incident, but they are worried things could escalate.

The incident happened at Taco Mac on Highway 20 West on Halloween.

Channel 2 Action News obtained video that shows the man sitting across from a man and woman eating when he suddenly makes a lewd move.

"This guy starts doing stuff in his lap, looking at her," said Major Kyle Hegelerson with the McDonough Police Department.

In the video, the man begins to touch himself.

Police worry the man could do this again and even become violent.

"Right there, she says "Oh my God," and he gets up and leaves quick," Hegelerson explained. "She screams at the suspect (who is) startled and runs out of the facility."

People who live and shop in the area are very concerned and so are police.

"That’s gross. There’s something very not normal with that," Rhonda Sinclair told Lucie. 

Lucie also talked with several employees who couldn’t comment on camera but they said this man walked in through the front doors with a friend. The man and his friend were seated on the patio; and employees said the suspect was there for a couple of minutes before he exposed himself.

The video shows his friend leave and that’s when police say the man in baggy jeans scared the woman across from him.

"This is not normal behavior. That’s a sickness they need help they really do," Sinclair said.

Anyone who recognizes the man is urged to call McDonough police at (770) 957-1218. They are worried he could do this again and could even become violent.
