The Dalton (Georgia) Police Department says they have identified a man authorities say exposed his genitals and openly masturbated while a woman made his sandwich at a local Subway restaurant, according to a news release. 

After police received several tips, the suspect has been identified as a man with "some sort of mental issues," the release states. He is currently not in custody.

The incident, which was caught by the store's surveillance video, happened on Sunday, Nov. 3, at the Subway at 1281 Glenwood Ave. Officials state the suspect is a Hispanic male who was wearing a plain white T-shirt, blue jean shorts and a toboggan hat and glasses. 

A release states the man approached the counter and ordered a sandwich, but while the employee was making the sandwich she realized he had exposed his genitals and was masturbating. 

Police said the employee was alarmed but finished making the sandwich and the suspect paid for his meal and left. 

Dalton investigators are working with the district attorney to "figure out how best to handle the situation," according to the release.

Anyone who recognizes the suspect is asked to contact Det. John Edwards at 706-278-9085, dial 9 and enter extension 152.
