Lakeville police are asking for the public's help to identify a burglary suspect they've dubbed "the Playboy bandit." 

According to police, an unknown male suspect forced his way inside a downtown Lakeville business in the 20000 block of Holyoke Ave. around 5:30 a.m. on June 25. 

"He was wearing a Playboy t-shirt and, most notably, striped boxer shorts," the department wrote in a Facebook post alongside security footage of the incident. 

Police are asking anyone who might recognize the "no-pants raider" to contact 952-985-4879. 

"Tipster’s identities can remain anonymous," the department stated.
