Well, they certainly know what he looks like.

Police revealed stark video of a perv who strolled naked down a Flatlands street last month, in the hopes someone can help them identify him.

The lewd dude casually ambled along E. 52nd Street between Avenues I and J without a shred of clothing at around 6 am on Aug. 12, cops said.

He is 25–30 years old and stands between 5-foot-6 and 5-foot-9, officials say.

A naked man beat and tried to rape a woman near her home on E. 56th Street and Avenue J on Aug. 29 just before midnight, and the exhibitionist in the video is a person of interest in the attack, cops said.

Police are asking anyone with information regarding either incident to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577–8477. The public can also submit tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website at or by texting tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then entering TIP577.
