PORTLAND, OR (KPTV/CNN) - Police in Portland, OR, are searching for a man who is throwing semen on women in grocery stores.

It has happened at least twice at a Safeway grocery store to the same woman. She said the first time, the man walked up to her inside the store and the second time it was in the parking lot from a car window.

"At first you're in disbelief because you're like is this really happening? This is disgusting. Who would do this?" the woman said. "Then it goes through your mind, like OK was he watching me this whole time? Was he in his car watching me unload my groceries? Has he been stalking me at the store?"

She went to the police, who told her the same thing has happened to other women.

Police released a surveillance image of the man they believe is responsible and are working with police in two other areas on similar cases.
