Some creep tried to rob a Greenpoint coffee stand after pleasuring himself in front of a female barista on Nov. 21, cops said.

The skeevy suspect approached the java counter at The Lot Radio headquarters on Nassau Avenue between Banker and N. 15th streets around 10:50 am, where he stood outside and masturbated while staring at the 20-year-old employee through a window, according to a report.

The worker then sought shelter in a back room of the facility, police said, and the man walked into the building and attempted to open the cash register, but he fled the scene after two employees entered the room and caught him in the act.

Authorities described the suspect as sporting a beard, and said he was last seen wearing a black jacket with red stripes on its arms.

Reach Deputy Editor Anthony Rotunno at or by calling (718) 260–8303.
