HOWELL, NJ — Police in New Jersey are searching for a man who was kicked out of a local movie theater for allegedly touching himself during a screening of The Emoji Movie — a children’s movie.
The suspect was sitting in the back row of the Xscape Movie Theater on Route 9 in Howell on Friday when a mother with her children reportedly witnessed him with his hands down his open pants.
She reported the incident to the theater manager, who asked the man to leave. Police were called, but the man had already left the area.
The man is described as heavyset, in his 20s or 30s, wearing a white dress shirt, black pants, and a yarmulke.
