A 35-year-old man who had been seen masturbating near the entrance of a Willy's grocery store on more than one occasion was arrested on Friday by police in Örebro.

The man was first seen on Thursday night pleasuring himself at the Willy's store entrance, the Nerikes Allehanda newspaper reports.

Described by witnesses as sporting a deep sun tan and masturbating shamelessly, the man was reported to police shortly after 8pm.

But by the time police arrived on the scene, the mystery masturbator had vanished on a bicycle.

While store personnel reportedly considered the incident inappropriate, they opted not to file a formal complaint.

On Friday, however, the 35-year-old came again to his favourite spot outside Willy's to give himself a helping hand.

But this time police were primed and ready to strike as soon as the man began to busy his hands.

Police are now preparing to launch a preliminary investigation into bringing sexual molestation charges against the man, who will soon be interrogated by police as part of the process.
