Photos: Do you recognize man who took photos of girls under King Soopers bathroom stalls?

Creep. Perv. Douchebag.

If Denver police are right about the man seen here, all of these names and more like them apply.

That's because he's thought to have taken photos of two young girls under the doors of a bathroom stall at a metro area King Soopers.

The incident reportedly took place around 6:20 p.m. at the 2727 West Evans Avenue King Soopers branch.

Around then, what are described as two juvenile females head to the lavatory. Shortly after they took their seats, however, they noticed a hand with a cell phone reached under the door and clicked pics.

Fortunately, the girls' parents were in the store, and after being hipped to what happened, they approached a fella they considered to be a likely suspect -- since he'd just stepped out of the girls' bathroom.

Surprise, surprise: Upon being confronted, the man quickly split. But the store's surveillance cameras caught more than a few glimpses of him. Here's the first photo released to the media....

...and the second.... ...and a third: If you recognize this uninvited photog, you're encouraged to phone Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720-913-7867. A reward of up to $2,000 is being offered in the case.
