(ABC 6 News) - The Olmsted County Sheriff's Department recounted a bizarre story that allegedly took place at Pure Pleasure, in Stewartville, Sunday morning.

Authorities say a man purchased some pills and a self-pleasuring device. He then allegedly took those items into a private video booth at the store. According to the Sheriff’s Department, the man then came out of the booth without any clothing on, and pointed the surveillance camera so it would point directly at him in the booth. He then went back into the booth and proceeded to pleasure himself.

Store employees say this is the second day in a row the man had done this.

He’s been identified as Joseph Siewert, of Rochester. Siewert could face charges of disorderly conduct, indecent or offensive exposure. Sheriff’s officials also say, because of Siewart’s background, those could be gross misdemeanor charges.
