When an Oregon father spotted a stranger allegedly pleasuring himself while gazing at his daughter, he did what any dad might do. He punched the man in the face.

Jeremy Clouse told authorities in Gresham that he and his 5-year-old girl were walking around 10 a.m., Tuesday, when he noticed an unidentified man sitting in a silver car.

"I wanted to walk around and see what he was doing of if he was from around here. And he had his pants down around his knees and uh doing every parent’s nightmare,” Clouse told KATU.

The alleged masturbator giggled when Clouse approached, he told KOIN. He had nothing to laugh about when Clouse socked him in the eye.

"I hit him two to three times," said Clouse.

Clouse attempted to pull the alleged creeper from his car, but the suspect resisted and drove away.

Police are searching for a light-skinned Hispanic male, weighing approximately 180 pounds. He likely has fresh bruising on his jaw or eye.

The suspect was driving a gray four-door Nissan Sentra from the 1990s, according to KPTV.

Anyone with information should call Gresham police at 503-618-2719.
