Parents received a rude awakening during an opening-day screening of “The Emoji Movie,” a film for kids, when a man was caught playing with himself inside the theater.

A mom with her children and friends spotted the culprit with his pants unbuttoned, zipper undone and hand down his pants at a theater in Howell, N.J. According to police, the man was seated in the back row of the theater.

The woman quickly alerted the theater’s management, and the man was escorted out of the theater. However, police were not called immediately, and the man went on his way.

The police were called later that day and have since asked for help from the public to identify the man. He is described as being in his 20s or 30s and was last seen wearing a white dress shirt and black pants.
