FARGO — Police here have identifed a man suspected of sexually propositioning shoppers at local stores this week.

Police are recommending that Lonnie Weiand, 50, of Minot, be charged with two misdemeanor counts of disorderly conduct, according to a post on the Fargo Police Department's Facebook page.

Court records show Weiand had not yet been charged as of Friday morning, June 1. Weiand, who's not in custody, does not have a listed phone number, and it's unclear whether Weiand has an attorney.

On Wednesday, police officers responded to two separate but similar incidents regarding a man lurking around victims and then sexually propositioning them at local shopping facilities, including West Acres.

Through social media, police publicized surveillance video images of the man at West Acres, and later said they had identified him as Weiand.
