CUMBERLAND COUNTY, N.C. — Cumberland County Sheriff’s deputies are looking for a man accused of fondling himself inside a library while holding a cooking magazine.

WTVD-TV reported that it happened around 10:30 a.m. July 7 inside a study room at the Bordeaux Library in Cumberland County.

Officials said three adults witnessed the incident, including a woman who taped the man on her cell phone.

Authorities said the man looked straight into her camera, as he fondled himself while holding a cooking magazine.

Library staff didn’t report the incident until early August. This week, after authorities were unable to find┬áthe man on their own, they released a still image of him from the cell phone video.
