Cops want to question a Manhattan restaurant owner after getting numerous tips that he's the subway flasher caught in the act by camera phone, police sources said last night.
Nearly two dozen people have phoned the Daily News and the NYPD to say they believe Dan Hoyt, co-owner of raw-food eateries called Quintessence, is the man whose photo appeared on the cover of Saturday's paper.
Investigators contacted Hoyt by phone and asked him to come in for an interview, NYPD sources said. No arrests have been made.
Hoyt did not return The News' calls, and his business partner and ex-wife, Tolentin Chan, said, "It's not proven yet."
She said whoever the flasher is, he needs counseling.
"There should be a support center to support these men to find what is the cause of their action instead of ...putting them in jail," she said.
Hoyt and Chan co-own two restaurants, one on E. 10th St. in the East Village and the other on Amsterdam Ave., and are well known in the raw food movement, which calls for serving uncooked food.
You think his ex has some idea that he likes to whip his dick out in public? Treatment? Sure, sure, honey. As long as he's no longer sharing your bed. Well, the girls he scares...they'll get over it.
Maybe if he cooked something, he might not be so creepy.
From what I read it seems he really likes Asian women. Enough to whip his dick out for them.
What is amazing, though, is how this story spread online and into the Daily News as a front page item.
I've always been creeped out by that Asian fetish thing. It's dehumanizing on most levels, like the person only counts because they look a certain way.
